    Plot

    Adonis Creed has been thriving in both his career and family life since stepping out of the ring as a fighter. Now a boxing promoter and trainer, Creed is focused on nurturing new talent and enjoying a peaceful existence with his partner Bianca and their daughter Amara. Despite stepping away from fighting, the world of boxing is never too far behind, and his success remains tethered to the gym, the drive to support emerging boxers, and his legacy as a former heavyweight champion.

    An unexpected figure from Creed's past resurfaces, bringing with him intense personal history and unresolved issues. The emergence of Damian, a former boxing prodigy and childhood friend of Creed, shakes the foundation of Creed's current life. Damian has spent years in prison and upon his release, he seeks to prove that despite his circumstances, he has what it takes to be a champion. Their shared past and differing paths set the stage for deep emotional turmoil and a challenge that Creed cannot simply ignore, testing his convictions and forcing him to confront his own history and ideas of loyalty, ambition, and the price of success.
