Canelo to star in creed iII

BARRIO – Director and lead actor Michael B. Jordan announced that boxing star Canelo Alvarez is set to appear in Creed III. While he has participated in many big fights, this will be the first time Alvarez appears on the big screen as an actor.

“Directing the legend himself @Canelo in Creed III. Can’t wait for the world to see on March 3,” Jordan wrote in an Instagram story.

The movie is set to release in theatres on March 3, 2023 and will mark Jordan’s directorial debut. We are unsure on what character Alvarez will play or how big his role will be, but it is not the first time the Creed series features famous boxers. Some of the fighters that made appearances in the first two movies include Tony Bellew, Andre Ward, Gabriel Rosado and Jacob Duran. 

It’s common for athletes, including those in combat sports, to take their talents to Hollywood. Earlier this year, Amazon Studios announced that UFC champion Conor McGregor will star in a remake of the movie Road House.
