Pretty good.
24 March 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Nehemiah Persoff and Moses Gunn star in this episode of "Quincy". It's interesting because Gunn previously played a punch-drunk guy on "Hawaii Five-O" ("Nine, Ten, You're Dead")--and here the episode is also about boxing.

The odds-on favorite in a boxing match loses. Quincy is upset because he lost money on the fight, but soon he learns that the losing boxer died immediately after the match! Not surprisingly, Quincy is called in to do the autopsy. But when the evidence about the death is inconclusive, Quincy decides to play detective (as usual).

All in all, not a bad episode at all. The only problem is that like too many other shows, Quincy is less of a coroner and more like a one-man detective force! Still, entertaining and worth seeing.

By the way, the old man at the end of the episode is ex-champion Joe Louis in case you were wondering.
