Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) prepares for the challenge of his life in "Creed II," which just shared Trailer II.
With guidance from Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), boxing phenom Adonis Creed prepares to fight Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu) -- son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), who killed Adonis' father Apollo Creed during a boxing match and was later defeated by Rocky.

Here's the official synopsis for the "Creed" sequel:
"Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family's past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what's worth fighting for, and discover that nothing's more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can't escape your history."
