… Says Boxer Co-Star

EXCLUSIVE

How serious did movie star Michael B. Jordan take his role for the movie “Creed?” So serious that his boxing co-star Gabriel Rosado says MBJ could deal out some two-fisted punishment for real.

Rosado — a former WBO light middleweight champ — was out in L.A. when he told us Michael was like a sponge during the production … soaking up enough boxing knowledge to make him a real life ass kicker.

“Michael can throw down man. If you sleep on him in the street he might put you to sleep.”

Gabriel would know a real fighter when he sees one … the dude’s been in the squared circle with champions like Gennady Golovkin and Peter Quillin.

Bonus awesomeness … you get to hear Rosado talk about having to remind himself that Rocky Balboa wasn’t a REAL champion fighter when he met Sly Stallone for the first time. It’s pretty funny. 

R.I.P. Apollo Creed.
