    The Review

    Adonis Creed has risen from the streets to the Heavyweight Champion of the World. Now he finds himself in the position of having to defend that title. Someone from the past has resurfaced and challenges Creed to a fight, not only to challenge a title but to restore themselves in the eyes of their homeland. Their problem didn’t start with Creed but it will finish with him. This fight brings forth many ghosts of the past for everyone involved. After the fight doesn’t go quite as planned, it will test the resolve of those involved. Healing will involve much more than the physical injuries. An unexpected surprise will help with the emotional difficulties but it’s the physical ones that will have to be overcome to have any chance at a real future. Rocky steps up to the plate and helps to break Adonis in order to build him back up. This will push them to their breaking point and even beyond. When it’s time for the rematch, will either of them be willing to make the necessary choice? Will Adonis defend his title? Will Rocky do what is necessary to protect him? So many questions, so many answers. The strength that wins out may surprise you. There’s much more here than meets the eye, come prepared for an exhilarating and exhausting experience and you won’t be disappointed.
