A popular young boxer on his way up, Tony Triano, is shotgunned to death on a dark city street by professional hit men. His family is devastated - who would want the generous Tony dead ? Especially hard-hit is Tony's mediocre stablemate Gino, who Tony helped get fights. Tony's family hires Peter Gunn to find who killed Tony. When the drunken Gino comes to Mother's nightclub to meet with Gunn, he's waylaid and beaten by the hit men. Written by David Stevens

A Tough Boxing Film-Noir-Like Tale
7 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Overacting by an actor helped bring down this otherwise-good episode, a tale of a successful boxer whom everyone liked getting murdered one night. His team was "Tony Triano," and he was much beloved in the city. His younger brother or stablemate (I wasn't sure how they worded that) "Gino," is a suspect because everyone knows how jealous Gino is of Tony. However, Gino yells, screams, gets drunks, yells more, gets dramatic to the point of ludicrousness, etc. and convinces Pete there may be someone else behind this senseless killing. Antony Carbone, the actor who plays Gino, overdoes all the theatrics.

En route to finding out the real killer, we run into some super-tough hoods, an ex-moll of Tony's and assorted other low-lifes from the world of boxing.

The ending to this is clever. I liked it, and it made the final scene in the boxing ring memorable.
