  • Ex-con Earl Dent is trying to get custody of his daughter from the state. So he has to show that he can provide. He tries to go into boxing and asks MacGyver to train him. Mac learns that Earl is going into the tank. Mac tells him if word got out, he will lose any chance of getting his daughter. So he tells the men who paid him he is not going to do it. So they grab his daughter. Mac tries to find her and bring her to the fight before he takes the dive.

  • For lack of real friends, just paroled Earl Dent practically invites himself to stay at MacGyver's and volunteers him, again unasked, as sponsor for his rehabilitation. Neither did he mention that includes coaching him as boxer, his only income prospect, and raising his utterly estranged brat daughter Veronica 'Ronnie', who learned to mistrust everyone in foster care. As if that weren't bad enough, Earl reneges on his secret deal with dodgy organizer Eddie Jackson to throw his first fight against Herman the German, so a henchman is ordered to snatch up live motivation: Ronnie.

  • Earl Dent (from #6.7 "Harry's Will" and #6.15 "High Control") is out of money and wants to go into boxing as a pro. He enlists MacGyver as his coach.
