Storyline

After discovering that Homer can take punches without feeling any apparent pain,ex-fighter Moe promotes him as a boxer. Homer's punching is poor but he only has to stand still long enough before the opponents are exhausted and collapse. World Heavyweight champion Drederick Tatum is a different matter,however,and Homer takes such a pounding that Moe arrives on a para glider to pluck him to safety. He still takes the money from Tatum's manager Lucius Sweet for the contest though. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

Marge Simpson: Homer, you don't know how to box, you're 38 years old, and you haven't gotten any exercise since grade school. Of all the crazy ideas you've had, this one ranks somewhere in the middle. Before you even consider this, I insist you consult a doctor.
Homer Simpson: No problemo.
[kisses her and walks off]
Marge Simpson: [realizes] A competent doctor!
Homer Simpson: D'oh!

Homer takes up Boxing, Loads of Fun,
7 April 2015 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Homer They Fall is a brilliant Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and a ton of very funny scenes. In comparison to some of the other great episodes in the eight season (this season is my favourite) it is quite weak, but that is saying a lot because it is still a very funny and enjoyable episode, it takes Homer and Moe's relationship to a whole new level. I really enjoyed seeing Homer take up boxing and the way that he won the matches was hilarious, and I also really liked Drederick Tatum, a character who is regularly seen on the show today, this being his debut. The Homer they Fall is a very fun Simpsons episode.

After discovering how well he can take a punch, Moe convinces Homer to take up boxing.
