Michael B. Jordan has come along way from starring in The Wire, Friday Night Lights and Fruitvale Station. The 28-year-old’s new film, Creed follows the story of boxing legend Apollo Creed’s son (played by Jordan) and his journey to the ring.
The brown skin cutie covers the December issue of Men’s Fitness and rightfully so. Jordan had to gain 24 pounds of muscle and spent months in the gym preparing for the role.
He talks to the magazine about bulking up, his strenuous diet, and working with film legend Sly Stallone.
