Adonis “Donnie” Creed, son of Rocky Balboa’s long-time rival Apollo, will face a boxer from his past in Creed 3.

The ninth film in the Rocky franchise, Creed 3 will be the follow-up to two incredibly successful installments following Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan), which saw him face lightweight champion Ricky Conlan and the son of the man who killed his father, Viktor Drago.

While the first two Creed movies have been exceptional at tying this new character to the existing lore of the Rocky series, including appearances by Sylvester Stallone and Dolph Lundgren, the third movie appears to be more personal to Adonis himself.
