Adonis Creed is ready for the fight of his life. The new Creed 2 trailer has been released, and the latest look reveals some of the intense training camp moments that Michael B. Jordan’s character will be going through as he prepares to fight the son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren).
In Creed 2, Jordan’s Adonis will be dealing with newfound fame and fortune as a popular boxer—plus all the intense pressures and stress that come along with it. Adonis now has a child with his girlfriend Bianca (Men in Black 4’s Tessa Thompson), and he’ll be challenged with the biggest fight he’s ever had, a matchup with Viktor Drago, played by professional boxer and Muscle & Fitness cover star Florian Munteanu.
Sylvester Stallone returns as Adonis’s mentor and coach, the iconic Rocky Balboa, who will be facing off against one of his biggest rivals again in Drago. Lundgren is returning to the franchise after last appearing in Rocky IV, and that should add some major nostalgia for fans of the Rocky series.
For anyone who hasn’t seen Rocky IV before—spoiler alert, by the way—Drago is the man who killed Adonis’s father Apollo Creed in the ring. Now, he’s returning with his son to take on the younger Creed.
The latest look at the film hypes up the matchup between Creed and Drago, and also reveals some of the badass training camp work that Creed will be doing with Rocky as he prepares for the match.
