Michael B. Jordan is stepping into the ring!

Jordan's co-star Sylvester Stallone took to his Instagram page yesterday to share the first photo of the 28-year-old boxing in his upcoming movie Creed, a spinoff from the Rocky franchise.

"Get ready to go for it!" the 68-year-old acting legend captioned the pic. The action shot shows Jordan and his character Adonis Creed, the son of Rocky Balboa's rival-turned-friend Apollo. Jordan looks ready to rumble as he stands with clenched fists in the ring dressed in black and white sporting gear. Meanwhile, Stallone coaches him on some punching moves from the side.

Creed will be Stallone's seventh film in the Rocky franchise and his latest since 2006's Rocky Balboa. The film will be directed by Jordan's Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler.

Meanwhile, back in January, Stallone snapped an epic fan selfie while he was filming on the staircase at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (aka the famous Rocky steps). Fan Peter Rowe said he and two of his college friends Jacob Kerstan and Andrew Wright had just finished racing up the staircase when they spotted the real Rocky Balboa himself!

"He said to us, 'Man, you guys are fast. You're making me look bad!"' Rowe later said.

Too cool.
