Michael B. Jordan got knocked out for real while shooting 'Creed,' and the video is brutal

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.

Jordan trained with personal trainer Corey Calliet to prepare for the role of Apollo Creed’s son in the acclaimed, Golden Globe-nominated film.
