Michael B. Jordan is ready for a fight. Now that his Creed 2 opponent has been cast—the 6’4”, 245-lb mammoth boxer Florian Munteanu will play the son of Dolph Lundgren’s iconic Rocky IV villain Ivan Drago—Jordan’s starting to ramp up his training in the ring. (Below, get a look at Michael B. Jordan’s boxing training for the film.)
Jordan, who got ridiculously shredded with this muscle-sculpting workout for the first Creed, is on his way to doing it again with Creed 2—which is expected to shoot in the spring. Jordan shared a live video on his Instagram page showing off the workout, and his boxing skills look as sharp as ever.
Although he’s been off the big screen since 2015’s Creed, Jordan hasn’t been sitting on his hands—not by a long shot. In fact, 2018 is shaping up to be the biggest year of Jordan’s career.
Along with Creed 2, Jordan is playing the main villain, Erik Killmonger, in the highly anticipated Black Panther film. And later in the year he’ll appear in the HBO movie adaptation of Fahrenheit 451 alongside Man of Steel star Michael Shannon and Mummy actress Sofia Bouletta.
In the video above, posted on Jordan’s official Instagram account, Jordan is in the ring throwing some jabs with a trainer. Below, check out some of the other training photos and videos he’s shared on his Instagram page:
Creed 2 will be released on November 21.
