Looking at this you get a better idea of what you don’t really see in the movie thanks to the speed and the camera angles that shift now and again in order to kind of mask what’s really going on. Carl Weathers was involved in boxing at a young age and was even in the NFL at one point with the Raiders, so he’s no stranger to being a top-notch athlete. Stallone on the other hand,

Jordan) takes on Ivan Drago's son.  A role that hadn't been cast, until now.

Sylvester Stallone Announces He Will Direct Michael B. Jordan in ‘Creed 2’

Sylvester Stallone Announces He Will Direct Michael B. Jordan in ‘Creed 2’
Last night Sylvester Stallone announced on Instagram that he will be directing “Creed 2.” “Looking forward to directing and Producing The incredibly talented Michael B Jordan in Creed 2 next year … One more Round!,” wrote Stallone.

Stallone has previously said he had completed writing the first draft of the script for “Creed 2” and hinted he is bringing back Dolph Lundgren’s Ivan Drago character (and presumedly his offspring) from “Rocky 4.” Last month Stallone also announced production would begin in 2018, although distributor MGM told Variety the project was still in development.

In addition to writing and starring in the original “Rocky,” Stallone had directed four of the previous sequels, including “Rocky Balboa” — made 30 years after the original, when Stallone was 60 years old — which was assumed to bring closure to the successful franchise.
