This prize fighting drama about a once great Black fighter who has to face four more bouts to achieve post retirement security packs a knockout punch

He is caught in a tug of war between his manager trainer and his corner man. The manager has an eye on the retirement stake, while the other wants to use him as a psychological talisman for a young fighter he wants to manager. The fighter only wants to fade gracefully away

"It is the most tightly written drama one could conceive of.... Utterly absorbing . . . boiling hard with the bile blood and sweat of life on the raw edge" ~ Philadelphia Daily News

"A prizefight yarn that packs a wallop . . . a clear winner" ~ Variety
