We're so pumped up!

This time around though, it's all about Apollo Creed's son, Adonis Creed, played by Michael B. Jordan, steps in the ring and asks the former champ, Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) to train him. Adonis has his own demons since he grew up without a father — Apollo died before he was born — but Rocky still sees the heart of a champion in him!

Apollo ends up getting a chance at the title but can he follow in his father's footsteps while still making his own mark on the world?! The movie also stars Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad, and Phylicia Rashad and is due out November 25, 2015!

Monday Night On The Bachelorette: The Boys Boxed For Love And Amy Schumer Pulled No Punches On Stage!

| Filed under: Love LineBoxingReality TVAmy Schumer

Amy Schumer saves The Bachelorette after a boxing date with a hilarious comedy club scene!

This season's The Bachelorette with Kaitlyn Bristowe is starting to take shape… kinda?! At least it's starting to get funny!

This week, the lovely lady began to narrow down her hunky options, but honestly, who cares about all that?! It's all about the drama and humor, right?!

Well, Monday night's episode had a little of both, thanks to Amy Schumer!

In the drama department, JJ has probably become the season's villain, at least early on, giving Jared's evil-looking face a run for its money. And in the humor department, Schumer made the show laugh-out-loud funny!

Manny Pacquiao Sued For $5 Million! Find Out What He Did Wrong Before The Big Fight HERE!

no title

Manny Pacquiao is already in for another fight — only this one will be in the courtroom.

Pacquiao and his team have been named in a $5 million class action lawsuit "on behalf of all persons who purchase tickets" to his May 2nd fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. after he failed to disclose an injury to the Nevada Athletic Commission.

According to the suit, Pacquiao checked the box that he did not have any injuries despite suffering a torn rotator cuff for which he will apparently need to undergo surgery.

Pacquiao advisor Michael Koncz has claimed he checked the box mistakenly.

Considering people paid expecting to see two healthy fighters — and even wagered money on the bout — it makes sense that some are crying foul. But should they really get their money back?

What do YOU think??
