It looks like Michael B. Jordan left a good impression on boxer Tony Bellew when they starred in Creed together.
Bellew, who played Adonis Creed rival “Pretty” Ricky Conlan in the film, scored a high-profile upset over the weekend, defeating WBA heavyweight champion David Haye in a bout on Saturday at O2 Arena in London.
But Bellew didn’t just defeat Haye—he literally knocked him out of the ring.
Bellew took the victory in the 11th round after putting together a thunderous combination of punches, sending Haye down and out for just the third loss in his career:

The fight was a pretty brutal one. Both fighters ended up suffering injuries during the course of the bout, with Bellew breaking his hand early on and Haye suffering an Achilles injury in the sixth round.
Bellew was very pleased with the result and may ride into the sunset with a major win behind him: “I will be totally honest, [retirement is] an option,” Bellew said to BBC Radio 5. “I’m thinking about it. I don’t know how many times I can put my body through this. I’m the best heavyweight outside the world champions and let’s not forget that. We’ve got three world champions—Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder and Joseph Parker—and none of them have a name like David Haye on their records.”
