MODERN DAY WARRIOR
Creed is more than a reboot of – or the next chapter in – the Rocky franchise. While 40 years of Rocky nostalgia is on full display and the timeless theme of facing your fears, working hard and rising up to overcome adversity are intact, the Creed films are also timely, fresh and diverse – a truly 21st-century American story. It’s fitting that the main character, Adonis Creed-Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) drapes himself in the Stars and Stripes in the ring – and VIP Fan Auctions is offering his iconic ring attire to the fan who lands the knockout bid. Adonis’s star-spangled trunks, Nike boots (and waist protector) worn on-screen in Creed II during his first bout with man-mountain Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn (click here for photos and more information). Also available is a bloodied pair of Adonis’s trunks worn on-screen during the fight – click here for photos and more information). You don’t get many chances in life to own a signature piece of Hollywood history, so don’t let this opportunity to own a piece of Creed II get away.
