Weak dialogue and a muddy plot undermine this crime drama about the Mafia's attempt to not only fix a championship fight, but to have the defending champion killed off in the ring. Frank Renzetti (Tony Curtis) is the ring owner who contacts the Mafia with this idea and Blake (Richard Gabourie) is his nemesis. Blake is a violent, mean cop who is rather misogynist but at least he hates the bad guys. The problem is that for the viewers as well as Blake, it is very difficult to tell who the bad guys are.
