Canelo Álvarez may be preparing for Saturday night’s highly anticipated trilogy fight against Gennady Golovkin, but apparently that hasn’t prevented him from taking on side projects.
His latest venture will see him make an appearance on the silver screen in Creed III.
The film’s director and lead actor, Michael B. Jordan, announced the news ahead of the weekend’s bout, sharing a series of pictures of him and Álvarez on set. It remains unclear what role the 32-year-old will take on in the film, which is scheduled for a March 3, 2023, release.
“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 Thursday night. “A star inside the ring and out … Welcome to the family. Good luck this weekend!”
