John L. Sullivan heads back to the ring, this time against a big rough house fighter who while not having subtlety has a scaly hide that's as bad as a punch. This time John L. Sullivan has a strategy though. Going against his usually tactic of throwing caution to the wind and slugging it out he and Buque have concocted a plan that relies on restraint, patience and cunning. Mrex tries to under mind the plan and drive a wedge between the fighter and trainer and their budding friendship. He doesn't like not being in total control and would sabotage his own investments to get his way.
