Michael B. Jordan wasn't afraid to take a hit when shooting his latest movie "Creed". Jordan took a real hit to the face to make this scene a little more authentic....

I haven't seen the movie, but I'm sure this punch looked awesome on film. Here's what Jordan said about the scene...

"The first couple times we tried to do [the punches], we tried to it with the slips. You know, and it's slow motion, so you can see the misses -- the space between the punches. So, all of a sudden, you just hear this snickering from the corner, and everybody's like "What?" And Sly's like, "Man you gotta take it." I'm like, "What do you mean?" He's like, "No, you gotta take a real punch." Like, pretty much, I had to really get hit. And legally, Ryan [Coogler] -- he'll definitely tell you this -- as a director, he can't legally say "take the punch." So I had to willingly step up and be like, "Alright, I'll take the hit." But I definitely got peer-pressured."

He got hit with a light punch and took a fall like he was in the WWE.

Im more impressed with him falling without putting his hands out. That shits hard to make yourself do.

He took a legit punch, but the KO part was him acting out the scene......From what I read from interviews on another site......Still shows he is a gutty actor, I remember reading that while filming Annapolis Tyrese and James Franco hated each other and have since refused to work with each other because Franco is more of a method actor so he was being "too rough" and throwing decent punches that Tyrese had kept asking him to stop

i'm pretty sure that "knocked out" doesn't mean what you think it means, Larry.
