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.
Portraying Rocky's physical deterioration was a humbling experience for Sylvester Stallone. "When you sit in the chair and you come as one person and then you open your eyes an hour and a half later and you've been transformed to a person who's not healthy... it's ... ...
Apollo? Yeah, he was great. Perfect fighter. Ain't nobody ever better.
Adonis Johnson: So how did you beat him?
Rocky Balboa: Time beat him. Time, you know, takes everybody out. It's undefeated.
Whilst watching Creed with subtitles at one point it refers to Rocky as Rambo.
Only movie in the Rocky series which Stallone didn't get top-billing.
