Storyline

Jack's boxing hero Mercury 'The Heat' Jones is held in observation at Community General with serious injuries after a KO title loss instead of the 50th victory he hopes to retire after, his wife Brianna wants him to stop anyway. Worse, his adversary Tommy Brackett is diagnosed with an irregular heart beat, no more fighting ever, so he refuses furious Jones a rematch. Brackett is found dead smothered the next morning, next to Mercury's hospital ID bracelet. Jack learns from neighborhood friend Marco who lost big betting and joins as 'Animal' -unwilling sparing partner- Tommy's ex-trainer Butch Reilly's gym to search Bracket's locker and office, confirming it was already deep in debt facing bankruptcy, as Steve already knew, but also a check indicating promoter Wayne Topping bought the fight. Then a witness turns up who saw Brianne entering Tommy's room, and a rented doctor's jacket. Yet the hospital sleuths still have to find out another suspect... Written by KGF Vissers
