Jonathan and Mark take jobs working in a local area boxing ring. The owner's grandson, Joey, has a good shot at the local championship fight against the leader of the gang causing the problems. Joey wants to win so that he can give the kids in the neighborhood an honest example to live up to, hopefully to prevent at least a few of them from joining the gangs.In order to ensure his victory, Thumper (the gang leader), kidnaps Joey's grandfather. Joey feels that his hands are tied and he has no choice but to throw the fight. Mark tries to tough talk the gang, figuring on Jonathan's angelic powers to kick their collective ass, but God doesn't see fit to grant Mark's wish and Jonathan gets beat up. He doesn't have any marks to show for the beating, but Jonathan is obviously pretty irritated with Mark over the incident, and can't figure out what he's supposed to do if God won't let him take the direct approach.
