After he returns the insults, Eddie is challenged to a fight. Despite Malcolm's warning, he agrees to square off with Jo Jo at Knuckles' Gym. But as he goes into training with Malcolm, Eddie has second thoughts once Nicolette reveals that Jo Jo was a boxing champion in prison. In an effort to save Eddie from a brutal beating, Malcolm suggests that his friend take a dive. Determined to take Malcolm's advice to heart, he arrives at the gym for his match with Jo Jo. But after getting in a few good licks, Eddie reconsiders his plans to lose. And once Jo Jo delivers another insult along with a flurry of damaging punches, Eddie is determined to fight to the finish. Although he worries about his best friend, Malcolm gives Eddie all the encouragement he can muster. As Jo Jo continues to land some solid punches, Eddie holds his own as the fight goes on. And even though he takes a beating he'll never forget, Eddie finally wins. Written by Anonymous See less
