The former World Heavyweight Champion Rocky Balboa serves as a trainer and mentor to Adonis Johnson, the son of his late friend and former rival Apollo Creed.
Michael B. Jordan was inspired by boxers Timothy Bradley, Pernell Whitaker and Andre Ward while creating Adonis's fighting style. Also, Andre Ward was played the role of 'Danny 'Stuntman' Wheeler'.
I can train at your house.
Rocky Balboa: No I don't know nobody's been to my house in a long time you might be uncomfortable there.
Adonis Johnson: What, do you walk around naked?
Before the final fight there is a scene which apparently takes place in the dressing rooms of Goodison Park, Merseyside, UK. However an American 2-pin plug socket can be seen on one of the walls.
Only movie in the Rocky series which Stallone didn't get top-billing.
SPOILER: In the final theatrical release of the film, Adonis Creed loses the fight to Pretty Ricky Conlan by split decision, mirroring the end of the original Rocky. However, another ending was filmed in which Creed wins the fight.
