Monk gets caught up in the shadowy world of boxing with his latest case -- and which could turn out to be his last. That's because the state now wants all PIs working with the police to pass a modest physical test. Monk isn't fit enough to read the list of requirements, never mind accomplish a single one of them. Fortunately, Monk and a title-seeking boxer whose life is in jeopardy end up training together, and this will pay off big-time later in the episode. A very funny episode, especially with Monk attired from head to foot in a lavender running suit. With a matching lavender sweat band. Wait until you see him try his hand at a pull-up. One very small complaint: since we are now well into the seventh season, I wish they would come up with a new opening. Hey, I'm just saying.
