The Creed 2 trailer was recently released, and everybody is primarily talking about 2 things.

  1. How impressed they are with the progression of Michael B Jordan’s physique since the first film and playing the role of Erik Killmonger in the Black Panther movie
  2. Who is the beast that they’ve got to play Viktor Drago?

Florian Munteanu

So the Drago name is back, and yes Dolph Lundgren is reprising the role of a now much older Ivan Drago in Creed 2. Viktor Drago is his son, and to play the role they have cast a 6’4″, 245 lbs boxer from Romania called Florian Munteanu. There were only a few glimpses of Viktor in the first trailer, but there have been clips all over the internet and social media showing Florian working out. Florian goes by the nickname “Big Nasty” which he got from his impressive stats, which interestingly, are very similar to Dolph Lundgren’s stats from the Rocky 4 movie. Florian has dark hair and features compared to Lundgren, so there isn’t a clear family resemblance for the movie, but initially he certainly looks the part.

Creed 2 workout and diet

The exact details of Florian’s workout, training plan and diet for Creed 2 haven’t been released. However there are a number of interviews with Florian where he describes his training and diet, which correlate with a lot of the videos online. The video below is a great compilation showing some insights into his plan.

Creed 2 is due for release in 2018, and I can’t wait to see it. Seeing Ivan Drago and Rocky together again, plus the new younger generation of their proteges is going to be awesome.
