Sylvester Stallone May Have Had To Break Up A Real Fight On The Set Of Creed

To give an example of life imitating art, apparently not all of the boxing on the set of Creed was for the camera. In March 2015, a report by TMZ stated that "Pretty" Ricky Conlan actor Tony Bellew decided to go off script in the middle of filming a scene and began pummeling the man who played his coach, forcing Sylvester Stallone to break character (or, more accurately, get more into character than usual) and put an end to the scene. An update in the article mentions that a Warner Bros. representative announced that the conflict between the actor and real-life professional boxer never really amounted to a physical brawl, while multiple witnesses claimed the opposite.
