Logline: 
An ageing, on his way out boxer bets everything on one last fight.
Synopsis/Details: 

Things haven’t been the same in boxing since the federation lifted the ban on cybernetic repairs in 2035. But these repairs don’t come cheap. A fighter has to keep getting back into the ring just to pay for them, resulting in more injuries and therefore the need for more treatments. It’s a vicious cycle and Carl, an ageing, on his way down contender, and his manager-brother, Rennie are eager to get out. The only way is to bet everything on one last fight against “Lucky” Lagowski, an out of shape, glass jawed loser who nevertheless has good odds owing to the fact he’s miraculously won his last three fights on technicalities. Sounds so simple, doesn’t it? It isn’t.
