In the second movie, Ivan Drago pits his own son against Adonis. Both of them get into the ring for a brutal match. Ivan was the person who brutally murdered Adonis’ father in a match.

Adonis prepares for his match with Viktor, Ivan’s son.
The third and the latest movie might follow the fight between both of them. The movie doesn’t have a trailer yet so it’s hard to assume what the plot might be. However, the stars have hinted at a few things. The movie might focus more on Bianca and her relationship with Donnie.
