Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities, take fate into their own hands, and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.
Years after Adonis Creed made a name for himself under Rocky Balboa's mentorship, the young boxer becomes the Heavyweight Champion of the World. While life is good with that victory and his marriage to Bianca, trouble comes to Philadelphia when Ivan Drago, the Russian boxer who killed Adonis' father, Apollo, arrives with his son, Viktor, to challenge Adonis. Against Rocky's advice, Adonis accepts the challenge without his mentor's participation and pays the price in a punishing bout he wins only by a technicality. Now injured and demoralized, Adonis cannot bring himself to back into the game, leaving his spirit and title in jeopardy. Together, Adonis' family and Rocky must find a way to rekindle Adonis' fighting spirit to face the future in whatever choice he makes. Meanwhile, the Drago family have its own troubles trying to regain the respect in their homeland that they lost at Rocky's hands as they wonder whether is it truly worth it.Written by

-A Creed sequel was confirmed in January 2016, although due to both Coogler and Jordan's involvement in Black Panther, the film was delayed, with Coogler ultimately being replaced by Caple. Stallone completed the script in July 2017 and announced Lundgren would be reprising his role as Drago, and filming began in Philadelphia in March 2018, lasting through July. See more »
"Throwing in the towel" will not stop a boxing bout. Only the referee or another official can stop the bout.
Throwing in the towel is still a common method for a corner to stop the fight. The referee will see the towel and call an immediate halt. See Golovkin vs Brook for a recent example. See more »
In the ring, you got rules. Outside, you got nothing. Life hits you with all these cheap shots. People like me, we live in the past. You got people that need you now. You got everything to lose, this guy has got nothing to lose.
I ain't gotta choice.
That's the same thing your father said, and he died right here
in my hands. Listen to me, this guy... he's dangerous.
But you don't think I can beat him...?

This film is great. It's so very deeply moving. Tears streamed my face during certain deeply meaningful scenes in this film.
The film isn't really about boxing nearly as much as it is about the love of family. Like the 1961 film "The Hustler", it's not really about winning and losing, either. It's about familial love, especially the love of fathers and sons, estrangement, loss, forgiveness, redemption, and reconciliation.
The film is about true family values and how very much more important they are than anything else in this life. Although the boxing scenes are great, they are only incidental to the overarching theme of family in this film. My most heartfelt kudos and thanks to the filmmakers of this great story.
