When a champion boxer suffers a devastating knockout that will prevent him from ever fighting again, he flees his handlers to open his own gym. Determined to make a miraculous comeback, he begins a grueling training regimen… The dashing, flamboyant, ex-boxer Hidekazu Akai brings extraordinary power to the boxing scenes while delivering an utterly credible star turn as a man who won’t take “no” for an answer.
