The Fruitvale Station actor plays boxer Adonis Johnson in the latest film in the Rocky franchise, the son of Rocky Balboa's late friend and former rival, Apollo Creed (played by Carl Weathers in the first four Rocky films).
ET caught up with Jordan last month, when he dished on just how badly he was hurt during filming. "There were definitely some slips, some jabs, some body punches," he admitted. "You're going to take those. There's nothing you can do about that. You just got to eat those."
"You get mentally tired and the fatigue kicks in," Jordan added. "You're supposed to slip left, slip right and he's throwing right and you get hit. That's kind of the thing that happened."
He also talked about getting close with 69-year-old Stallone, who reprised his iconic role for the film.
"I think Sly is an amazing actor and he gives you whatever you need in your scene," Jordan gushed. "I would like to think that we pushed each other in those scenes to the breaking point, to those limits where you found the raw emotion."
Last month, Stallone made headlines at the Creed premiere in Westwood, California, for an unexpected reason -- his three gorgeous daughters with wife, Jennifer Flavin. It's safe to say all eyes were on Sophia, 19, Sistine, 17, and 13-year-old Scarlet, who stole the show on the red carpet thanks to their stunning good looks.
