Summary
Paroled after serving time for a murder he didn't commit, prison boxing champ Martel "Too Sweet" Gordone hangs up his gloves, moves in with his sister's family and rekindles his romance with Clarisse. But he soon learns that life on the outside isn't much easier than it was in prison. As a condition of his parole, he's required to work for fight promoter Sam Cunningham who has his own plans for Sweet's future. Though Sweet refuses to re-enter the ring, Sam pressures him relentlessly. To make matters worse, prison nemesis "Half Dead" Johnson has just broken out and wants to take Sweet down. When Clarisse is murdered by "Half Dead," it's almost more than Sweet can bear. But, with the help of his trainers, he agrees to return to the fight game and begin his rise to the top. Meanwhile, brother-in-law Charles continues the battle against "Half Dead" and his two henchmen, who have vowed to destroy the Gordone family
