Suitable for Family Viewing - Mild violence. The subject deals with boxing, and a boxer who tends to throw up in the ring, but it's never shown, only implied.
Hatanaka Kosaku is a 19 year old pro boxer with a bit of a problem. He's a hopeless glutton who will do anything to get something to eat. Not knowing better, Sister Angela takes in a young man who fainted on the church steps and feeds him not realising that this is the one person in the area whom she must not feed. Especially since it was just before he was to fight in a boxing match. During the match, Kosuke ends up throwing up in the ring after taking some hits to the stomach and loses the match. Needless to say, no one wants to fight him now and his subsequently scheduled matches have all been cancelled. If only he had another chance to get in the ring and fight again...
