Plot Overview

Linc's old friend, a retired champion boxer, attempts a comeback in an attempt to reconnect with his troubled son. What Linc discovers about the boy is that he's in debt to gamblers who want him to see that his dad doesn't win the match. After Linc knocks the fighter down during simple sparring, he begins to worry that his friend is in poor health and may not survive a pummeling in the ring.
