In this drama, a young boxer grapples with the specter of his late father, boxing champ Apollo Creed. When Apollo's old rival, Rocky Balboa, agrees to be young Adonis' trainer, the stage is set for a story of redemption and forgiveness. In 1998, Adonis "Donnie" Johnson, the son of former heavyweight champion Apollo Creed and his extramarital lover, is serving time in a Los Angeles youth detention center when Creed's widow, Mary Anne, visits and offers to take him in. In 2015, Donnie is in Tijuana, preparing for his fight in an amateur boxing bout hosted in a bar. Upon returning from his latest fight, Donnie resigns from the Smith Boardley Financial Group to pursue his dream of becoming a professional boxer. Donnie auditions at Los Angeles' elite Delphi Boxing Academy, managed by family friend Tony "Little Duke" Evers Jr., the son of Apollo's trainer Tony "Duke" Evers, but is turned down.

Mary Anne vehemently opposes his aspirations, remembering how her husband was killed in the ring by Ivan Drago thirty years ago. Undaunted, Donnie travels to Philadelphia in hopes of getting in touch with his father's old friend and rival, former heavyweight champion, Rocky Balboa.
