The second trailer for Rocky spin-off Creed has been unveiled, with Sly Stallone returning to the ring – well, standing in the corner with a sponge at least – to train his old friend Apollo Creed’s son.

The story follows Adonis Johnson Creed (Michael B. Jordan) as he heads to Philadelphia to find the legendary fighter that beat his father, and persuade Balboa to train him for a shot at the title.

Mostly set in Philly, British audiences will be amused to hear Creed's opening scene was filmed at a Premier League game between Everton and West Bromwich Albion, and stars Merseyside Cruiserweight Tony Bellow as fierce rival and title contender ‘Pretty’ Ricky Conlon.

Judging by the trailer, Creed looks like your classic paint-by-numbers boxing drama full of big punches, motivational speeches and gritty training sequences – which is alright by us, particularly as that seems to involve Stallone channeling his inner Mr Miyagi with some unorthadox chicken chasing exercises.

Creed is out in 2016
