Michael B. Jordan’s commitment to his “Creed” character got him knocked out for real.
In a nine-second video Sylvester Stallone posted on Twitter, Jordan, as Adonis Creed, is preparing to shoot a boxing scene for the “Rocky” reboot film out now.
As the director calls action, a punch hits him square in the face and sends him to the mat.
But getting knocked out didn’t keep him down. Stallone said he got back up and did the scene again.
