Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) never knew his famous father boxing champion Apollo Creed who died before Adonis was born. However boxing is in his blood so he seeks out Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) and asks the retired champ to be his trainer. Rocky sees much of Apollo in Adonis and agrees to mentor him even as he battles an opponent deadlier than any in the ring. With Rocky’s help Adonis soon gets a title shot but whether he has the true heart of a fighter remains to be seen.
