WATCH: Stallone Tweets Video of Michael B. Jordan Getting Knocked Out During Creed Shoot
Yesterday on Twitter, Sylvester Stallone shared a video from the set of Creed where his cast mate Michael B. Jordan actually gets knocked out while shooting a boxing scene for the film.
“Michael B Jordon, young creed and getting KO’d for real! But he got up and did it again! That’s called guts!!,” Stallone tweeted along with the video. Check it out:

Vulture, perhaps tongue-in-cheekily, says the video should guarantee Jordan get an Oscar nomination for his role. “If you get hit in the face so hard you are knocked out while filming a movie, you should automatically get an Oscar nom,” the writer says.
The idea isn’t so far-fetched, but it seems like Stallone himself will be getting all the awards this year. Or at least the nominations. He already won an award from the National Board of Review for the role, and it was announced today that he will be up for a Best Supporting Actor trophy at next year’s Golden Globes ceremony.
