Yo Adrian, they’re doing it! Again. For the eighth time. Yes, Rocky Balboa is back again and he’s in the corner of Adonis Creed. Adonis is the son of deceased consensus p4p greatest boxer of all time in fact or fiction, Apollo Creed. As has been well documented, Ivan Drago murdered Apollo and suffered absolutely zero legal repercussions or even an investigation.
Seemingly two months later, Drago was allowed to fight Rocky in his home country of Russia. He was juiced to the gills because USADA didn’t come until later. In the 1980’s, commissions needed only your word that you were clean. Despite being two weight classes higher than Rocky Balboa, Ivan got knocked out and Rocky ended the Cold War. The end. Or was it?
Enter 2018 and Drago’s son is following in his boxing footsteps, as Adonis did with his father. Now, the two will clash inside the ring and hopefully, we will avoid another Creed-Death-by-Drago.
Creed 2 hits theaters on November 21.
