A Game Of Boxing
13 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Gary Lockwood plays newly crowned heavy-weight champion Jim Figg, who has just taken a shower in his hotel room only to emerge in a different location, which turns out to be a suite of some kind. He is informed by a valet that he is now the guest of Roderick & Sandra Blanco(played by Chuck Connors & Joan Van Ark). Roderick wants a private match with Jim, and promises to make it worth his while, but Sandra tells him to throw the fight, not because she fears for his safety, but because the price of victory will be too high... Mediocre tale will fool no one who has seen "The Twilight Zone", but interesting cast and direction give it a bit of distinction.
