Watch Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) Get Knocked Out For Real During Creed Filming (VIDEO)
No concussion protocol in Hollywood, I guess. Michael B. Jorden, who plays Apollo Creed's son in the new movie Creed, was KO'd for real during the shooting of the film -- a fact we wouldn't know except that Sylvester Stallone gleefully posted a video of the incident on Twitter today.

Personally I think it's more courageous to drink raw eggs, as Stallone did in in the original Rocky. Did that happen in Creed? Haven't seen it. The movie comes out in January.
The blow was delivered by Creed's adversary in the film, the real-life former pro light heavyweight Tony Bellew, who plays world champion Pretty Ricky Conlan. They were choreographing the boxing sequences, working on timing, when Jordan literally walked into one of Bellew's right hands. Jordan was apparently OK, once he woke up.
Stallone himself was hospitalized after taking a punch to the chest by Dolph Lundgren during the filming of Rocky IV, in 1985.
