Sam Beckett leaps into the body of a boxer who has a shot a winning the championship. The man's contract is owned by local nuns who inherited his rights from a boxing promoter and their hope is that they could make enough money to build a chapel and drop-in center for the poor. What they don't know is that the boxer's 10 bout winning streak is the result of fixed matches and an unscrupulous boxing promoter now wants him to take in dive in the championship bout. Sam comes up with a clever solution that he hopes will satisfy all parties. Written by

Sister Angela describes the layout of the proposed chapel: a north wall with a stained glass window, she then reffers to light streaming through the stained glass. This is in California, well north of the Tropic of Cancer; sunlight can not shine directly in through a north window. See more
During the running scene, Sister Angela isn't wearing a wedding band, which nuns traditionally wear because they are married to God. See more

You'd kill a guy 'cause he wants to quit?
I don't kill people. What do you think I am? We blow off your kneecaps. Give you a little wooden board with roller-skate wheels for the rest of your life.
