Michael B. Jordan is back as Apollo Creed’s son Adonis in the first trailer for Creed II.

MGM and Warner Bros. released the two-minute video Wednesday.

It shows Adonis facing the most difficult decision of his life, whether to take on brutal Russian fighter Viktor Drago.

Kendrick Lamar’s DNA pulses in the background as Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky Balbao tries to convince Adonis not to fight the son of Drago, who killed his father Creed in the ring in Rocky IV.

Ryan Coogler, who directed 2015’s massively successful Creed, executive produces the sequel along with Guy Riedel and Michael B. Jordan.

Creed II hits theaters on November 21.
