What is Creed II about?

In 2018, three years after his loss to "Pretty" Ricky Conlan, Adonis "Donnie" Creed (Michael B. Jordan) wins six straight bouts, culminating in a victory over Danny "Stuntman" Wheeler (Andre Ward) to win the WBC World Heavyweight Championship. Now a worldwide star, Donnie proposes to his girlfriend, Bianca Taylor (Tessa Thompson), who agrees to marry him. When Bianca suggests starting a new life together in Los Angeles, Donnie is reluctant to leave Philadelphia as it would mean leaving Rocky.
Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), the former Soviet boxer who 33 years earlier in 1985 killed Donnie's father, Apollo Creed, in the ring, sees an opportunity to regain glory after his loss to Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) in Moscow later that same year. Assisted by promoter Buddy Marcelle (Russell Hornsby), Ivan pits his son, Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu), against Donnie. When Rocky refuses to support Donnie's decision to accept Viktor's challenge, Donnie leaves for Los Angeles.
Donnie and Bianca settle down in a luxurious apartment in Los Angeles close to Donnie's adoptive mother and Apollo's widow, Mary (Phylicia Rashad) Anne. As they adjust to their new life and prepare for the upcoming match with Viktor, Bianca learns that she is pregnant. Donnie recruits Tony "Little (Wood Harris) Duke" Evers, son of his father's trainer and later Rocky's trainer, to start training him. Overwhelmed with his life's recent developments, he rushes into the match and is badly injured. Viktor is disqualified for hitting Donnie while he is down, allowing Donnie to retain the World Heavyweight Championship. Viktor becomes extremely popular in Russia and wins a series of fights with top billing.
