Michael B. Jordan has gone through quite the transformation. And no, we’re not just talking about the 24 pounds of pure muscle MBJ packed on to play the title character in Rocky spinoff Creed (although that’s pretty damn impressive, too). Jordan has evolved from a young supporting player in TV’s The Wire and Friday Night Lights, to bona fide Hollywood heavyweight. In this exclusive behind-the-scenes video from his MEN’S FITNESS cover shoot, Jordan sheds some light on bulking up, boxing training, and working with film legend Sly Stallone.
