BILLY TUPPER’S KNOCKOUT BOUT: A local mob boss meets trained killers in a dark fighting gym. It’s an initiation of sorts. First one to beat Billy to death wins. His first opponent doesn’t waste any time. Dazed, Billy thinks back to the after-hours deal that gave him his big break. As he goes toe-to-toe with more fighters, Billy’s mind returns to an important conversation with his favorite waitress and some good advice from Coach. Both beg Billy not to fight anymore, mostly because he’s terrible at it. But the concept escapes him. Fighters fight, he says. The gym fight doctor shares war stories as he patches Billy up, offering an important business contact in the community. Excited, Billy and Baby Doll make big plans for their future. After Billy survives next couple bouts, the impatient mob boss decides to take matters into his own hands, with unpredictable results. And then . . . while facing foe from his past, Billy comes to terms with the tragic backyard birthday party accident that lead to his entire fighting career. Watch the whole series HERE.
