Storyline

Shiza is the nickname of a 15-year-old boy. Money, power, and women - he has none of these, yet, in his young life. But, he does have the illegal, underground circuit of bare-knuckle fist-fighting, where he is able to eke out a living by scouting for fighters. When a man is accidentally killed in the ring, though, his life is changed forever. He decides that he should return the dead man's money to his widow and child. But, after he meets the woman, Shiza understands that he has real feelings of love for her. Now, he knows for whom he must earn money, no matter what the cost... Written by Anonymous

The best thing you can do in a brutal environment is outperform bad guys. That's exactly what the main character is doing. There's a slight hint though that he won't take place of his defeated enemies. He has some values in him to prevent that to happen.
