The trailer for Creed III debuted Tuesday and it shows Michael B. Jordan settling a score with Jonathan Majors in the boxing ring.
The two portray friends who lost touch when Majors’ character Damian went to prison for 18 years. After Damian returns to town, he’s eager to prove he’s ready to get back in the ring.
“I know I’ve been away a long time, but I’ve got myself in shape. I’ve still got gas in the tank,” Damian says.
“Come by the gym,” Jordan’s Adonis Creed tells him. Damian reveals the two were once “like brothers,” but Adonis left him behind on his road to success.
