The upcoming boxing sequel, Creed 3, will feature the “best combo fights” legendary fighter Jacob “Stitch” Duran has ever seen, according to the man himself. Speaking to Fred Tox Fight , Duran teased the brilliance of boxing at the center of the series, and revealed that Creed 3 will be “completely different” from the rest of the Rocky franchise.
“We finished filming a month ago, it’s going to be a lot of fun. Michael B. Jordan did a great job, the plot of the movie is completely different, not like Rocky, it’s a completely different story, with great fights, probably the most coordinated fights I’ve ever seen.
Duran, who appeared in the Creed franchise as Michael B. Jordan’s champion boxer and worked on real-life boxing pros like the Klitschko brothers and Tyson Fury, said Creed 3 has a different story than Rocky fans. They are waiting. And while he didn’t give away any more details, it’s not the first time that Creed 3 has made its own way.
Rocky star and action movie icon Sylvester Stallone previously said that the Creed 3 sequel will take it “in a different direction.” I wish them well and keep punching!” One such difference is the complete absence of Rocky Balboa, who does not appear in Creed 3. While Stallone declined to give further details at the time, he called it “very exciting.” So what do you think these big changes might be? Creed 3 still focuses on boxing, so how different can it really be? Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait until next year to find out.
Michael B. Jordan directs and stars in Creed III
Creed star Michael B. Jordan is set to make his feature directorial debut in the upcoming boxing trilogy, which finds Jordan’s title character stepping into the ring against a menacingly bulky Jonathan Mears.
While Creed 3’s further plot details remain a mystery at the moment, Jordan has been praised for the addition of the Majors, as well as teasing a boxing match that will see the pair go head-to-head. “Jonathan is an incredible actor, an incredible person,” Jordan said of adding the actor to the franchise. “Me and him, we just met when we first spoke. And then when I shot the movie, it hit me back and it all went from there, you know? So, it’s bought. He has many different talents, and things he brings to the table. He was just perfect for the role, so it was a match made in heaven. I am very lucky. We are so blessed to have him and I can’t wait for everyone to see what we are up to.
Directed by Michael B. Jordan from a screenplay by Kenan Coogle and Zach Bailin. and Mila Davis-Kent, Creed 3 is scheduled for release on March 3, 2023 via United Artists.
