Creed 2 follows the events of the first movie, where the main character Adonis Johnson, played by Michael B. Jordan continues his boxing career. After the events of the first movie, Adonis becomes a boxing champion, and he gets married to Bianca, played by Tessa Thompson. Trouble comes when Ivan Drago, a former boxer and the one who killed Adonis' father in a boxing match, travels to Adonis' city in order to have his son Viktor challenge Adonis for the championship. Rocky does not want Adonis to accept the fight, but Adonis does anyway, feeling the emotion from his father's tragic past. As is with many sports dramas, the conflict of the movie is mainly internal, with Adonis grappling with motivations and goals.
