Michael B. Jordan and athletes participated in a series of boxing and strengthening drills while outfitted in the latest Jordan Brand training product, including the Jordan Brand Shield Hoodie. Crafted from durable fabric that repels rain, wind and snow, the hoodie also features reflective details that enhance visibility in low light.

The actor’s commitment to peak physical performance is also a key trait of his “Creed” character, Adonis Johnson, who embodies a strong work ethic and dedication to being the best at his sport.

“When I read the Creed script for the first time, I started thinking about what I fight for and it made the whole project resonate with me,” said Michael B. Jordan. “Fitness and hard work have always been prioritized in my career which made the role and being part of the Jordan Brand training experience an easy decision.”
