Creed has gotten rave reviews, from the writing to the directing and of course the performances of stars Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone. Well, it turns out Jordan wasn't just acting when it came to his in-ring performance, at least according to his older co-star.
"Michael B. Jordan, 'young Creed' and getting KO'd for real!" Stallone tweeted (corrected for spelling). "But he got up and did it again! That's called guts!!"
The actor shared a video of the incident in question, and man, it sure looks like Jordan got full-on, 100% knocked the heck out.

It makes sense that in these full-contact films, and action stars get injured on set every once in awhile. Harrison Ford famously had a door on the Millennium Falcon set fall on him, breaking his leg (and subsequently JJ Abrams' back when he went to lift it off him). That Jordan went through this and got back up indeed shows a special kind of guts.
