We're really looking forward to seeing what 'Creed' brings to the table when it hits Irish cinemas in January, mainly because of the seriously encouraging press that the film has received since it launched in the US, but also because of a little behind the scenes clip that has emerged.
The son of Apollo Creed (the focus of the film in case you didn't know) is played by Michael B. Jordan, who our readers will know as Wallace from 'The Wire' or Vince from 'Friday Night Lights', and one of his fights in the movie is against a boxer played by British cruiserweight Tony Bellew, during the filming it appears as though Bellew caught Jordan with a very, VERY, convincing punch that floored the actor, and prompted this tweet from Sly Stallone:

It could be staged, but that's some damn fine acting if so, which bodes well for the film.
