Sylvester Stallone has released a behind-the-scenes clip showing Michael B. Jordan taking a full blow to the head during the shoot for “Creed.”
The actor went through a gruelling training program to get himself ready for “Creed” but during production, he took a real punch to the face, and was knocked out.
In the clip below you can see Jordan doing a fight rehearsal with a green screen background. There’s energy and apprehension but all of a sudden a punch from Cruiserweight boxer Tony Bellew goes straight into his face and he flies backwards and drops cold.
