Here is a short review of "Creed" movie plot summary.
In 1998, Adonis "Donnie" Johnson, the son of former heavyweight champion Apollo Creed and his extramarital lover, is serving time in a Los Angeles youth detention center when Creed's widow, Mary (Phylicia Rashad) Anne, visits and offers to take him in. In 2015, Donnie (Michael B. Jordan) is in Tijuana, preparing for his fight in an amateur boxing bout hosted in a bar. Upon returning from his latest fight, Donnie resigns from the Smith Boardley Financial Group to pursue his dream of becoming a professional boxer. Donnie auditions at Los Angeles' elite Delphi Boxing Academy, managed by family friend Tony "Little Duke" Evers Jr (Wood Harris)., the son of Apollo's trainer Tony "Duke" Evers, but is turned down. This rejection is further emphasized as Donnie is beaten in a sparring match by light heavyweight division first contender Danny "The Stuntman" Wheeler after he publicly challenges the whole gym to prove himself (Jacob "Stitch" Duran) by betting to give away his 1965 Ford Mustang. Mary Anne vehemently opposes his aspirations, remembering how her husband was killed in the ring by Ivan Drago thirty years ago. Undaunted, Donnie travels to Philadelphia in hopes of getting in touch with his father's old friend and rival, former heavyweight champion, Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone).
Donnie meets Rocky at Rocky's Italian restaurant, Adrian's, named in honor of his deceased wife, and asks Rocky to become his trainer. Rocky is reluctant to return to boxing, having already made a one-off comeback at a very advanced age despite having suffered brain trauma during his career as a fighter. However, he eventually agrees. Donnie asks him about the "secret third fight" between him and Apollo just after Apollo helped Rocky regain the heavyweight title, and Rocky reveals that Apollo won. Donnie trains at the Front Street Gym, with several of Rocky's longtime friends as cornermen. He also finds a love interest in Bianca (Tessa Thompson), an up-and-coming singer and songwriter.
