Creed 3 Sets Up Adonis Avenging His Only Boxing Defeat

The Creed 3 trailer reveals scenes where Adonis Creed rematches Ricky Conlan. Conlan handed Adonis Creed his only professional loss in the series.


The trailer for Creed 3 reveals that Adonis Creed is taking revenge for his only defeat from the first film. 2015 Beliefs, Adonis Creed unsuccessfully challenged light heavyweight champion Ricky Conlan for Adonis’ first shot at a world title. Conlan is played by real life boxer and former cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew.


Creed 3s trailer shows bits of a rematch between Adonis Creed and Ricky Conlan. The results of the fight are not shown, but it is likely that Adonis won as the remaining trailer scenes show him as a successful boxer at his peak or possibly later in his career. Ricky Conlan was in jail at the end of the first Beliefs movie, so this fight takes place well into Adonis Creed’s career as the movie takes place seven years later Creed II. Their first fight was at light-heavyweight, but Creed has since become the heavyweight champion, so their rematch is likely at a new weight. A second fight for the two will allow Adonis to grow and redeem, while giving the character a chance to show how far he’s come as a boxer and as a person.

Why Adonis Creed Beating Ricky Conlan Is Important To His Story

Ricky Conlan is the only loss on Adonis Creed’s record. The fight with Conlan is what put the younger Creed in the spotlight and gave him a name of his own. If you get this win back, Adonis Creed would be one of the best boxers in the world rocky series. The victory would also continue a rocky tradition of overcoming previous defeats as Balboa did with Adonis’ father, Apollo Creed.

What else we know about the Creed 3 story

The trailer reveals that Creed 3 takes place seven years after the previous film. Adonis Creed is now an established boxer who has won multiple championships and is in the second half of his career. He follows in the footsteps of his father and his mentor, Rocky, by opening a gym that trains up-and-coming fighters. Creed 3s trailer also reveals his villain, played by Jonathan Majors. Majors stars as Damian, a former friend of Adonis, who was recently released from prison after serving 18 years for an undisclosed crime. This will be Majors’ second movie villain in 2023 as he plays Kang the Conqueror in Marvel’s upcoming movie Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Creed 3 seems to stand out from the rest of the rocky series. Not only will it mark Michael B Jordan’s directorial debut, but it will also be missing a big chunk. The film will especially miss Sylvester Stallone, who will not appear for the first time in the spin-off franchise. While his absence will be palpable, the addition of Majors seems to be a good fit, showing that the series is in good hands.
