In July of 1931 at the Chicago Sports Arena up and coming light-heavyweight boxer Joey McGrath is taking on journeyman Rocky Pearson. Many fight experts have tagged McGrath as the next light-heavyweight champ but things aren't going so well for him on this evening. After Pearson starts pummeling him in the 9th round, McGrath's manager, Barney Jarreau, throws in the towel. He is carried unconscious to the locker room where he dies...Read the full recap
Rico: Going somewhere, Mr. Krasna?
Narrator: Tonight, Joey McGrath was on his way out.
Acropolis: (to Jarreau) People with big mouths have been known to get hurt.
Jarreau: (about hitting Ness) But that was yesterday.
Ness: It took me 24 hours to get mad.
Acropolis: I hope you do shoot off your mouth, Jarreau. Then they'll let me finish you for good.
Hobson: The fight game is like the weather. Everybody talks about it but nobody does anything.
Acropolis: (about McGrath) How is he?
Blinky: He ain't good.
Further proof that The Untouchables should have avoided episodes with a boxing setting although this one is not nearly as bad as Season One's Head of Fire, Feet of Clay which also dealt with the squared circle. This one is redeemed a little by an excellent performance from tough guy actor Harold J. Stone.
