Andre Ward and Tony Bellew are in talks to join CREED. The sports drama stars Michael B. Jordan as the grandson of Apollo Creed, who starts training to be a boxer, despite his family’s wishes. Sylvester Stallone will play his mentor, Rocky Balboa. Bellew will play Creed’s main opponenet, “Pretty Ricky Porter.” Ryan Coogler is directing the project, which he co-wrote with Aaron Covington.
Both Ward and Bellew are champion boxers in real life, with Ward currently holding the title of World Boxing Association champion in the super-middleweight division. Bellew is a former three-time heavyweight champion in England’s Amateur Boxing Association.
