Storyline

The IMF's assignment is to undermine the Syndicate's involvement in the boxing world by driving a wedge between Joe Braddock, a no-nonsense hood, and Paul Mitchell, his more weak-willed partner, who had been honest before Braddock enticed him to become involved in the Syndicate. To do so, the IMF takes advantage of the budding romance between Mitchell's daughter, Susan, and one of Braddock's and Mitchell's contract boxers, Pete Novick. Written by aldanoli

Another Rehash Episode
17 August 2019 | by Desertman84See all my reviews

"The Fighter" is another rehash episode from one of the TV series' previous seasons. In it,we get to see the IMF investigate a mob organization's involvement in the sport of boxing.A fan of show have seen it before.

As expected,we get to see a very poor season and it was evident that the show is headed for a cancellation after the seventh season. We see the IMF deal primarily on mobsters and organized crime.The IMF unknowingly diminished itself from being a police group. Added to that,we barely see anything fresh and original themes.
