I think Michael B. Jordan is starting to get this whole boxing thing all figured out. Especially after seeing how good he looks in a new video he shared of himself doing some boxing training for Creed 2.
As you may recall, the last time Jordan played Apollo Creed’s son Adonis Johnson he got completely shredded thanks to a grueling workout and boxing regimen. And in the course of that training, as well as shooting the movie, he fell in love with boxing.
This despite the fact that Sylvester Stallone was cajoled into agreeing to “initiate” him into the “Rocky” club by having him take an actual punch from a real-life fighter. Needless to say, that did not end well for Jordan.

Ouch. Here’s the awesome story from Stallone himself about how that happened…
Now, with Ivan Drago’s son cast for the sequel, and with Stallone and Dolph Lundgren looking like they’re ready for a sequel themselves, Jordan is back in the ring putting in some serious work. And he looks very sharp in a live video he shared on his Instagram page.
Creed 2 hits theaters on November 21st. Can’t wait.

We’ll see about that, Drago. We’ll see.
