Sheena and Cutter are supporting Malina (Leila Ali), a female boxer, who is expected to lose a great fight in Maltaka at least that's what her opponent Kelly's manager intends to arrange. Strange 'accidents' start to happen, for example Malina almost falls from a bridge into a gorge, but she is saved by Sheena. Cutter tells Kelly's manager: I'm not implying anything, that would be subtle. I'm saying you had something to do with it. If somebody from your camp tries to hurt my fighter again, the consequences will be very ugly." Therefore, the villains try a different approach and abduct Mendelsohn. On the day of the fight, time is running out...
It's by no means a new story high bets placed on a fight that must bring the right result for the bad guys, so they are threatening their opponents etc., seen it all before. It also doesn't fit well into the Sheena series, because it could just as well play in NYC instead of Maltaka. Nevertheless it's an OK episode, nicely using the character of Mendelsohn who is not just the funny sidekick here, but a better coach than Cutter.
