Junji Sakamoto follows up on his acclaimed boxing movie Dotsuitarunen with another boxing movie. The film centers on former pugilist (Bunta Sugawara) who in the throes of a midlife crisis decides to sell off his prosperous lumber company in order to manage full-time his boxing gym. He manages to recruit a juvenile delinquent (played by 1988 Japanese middleweight champion Takeshi Owa), who recently trashed a car rental shop. The kid proves to be a natural, easily demolishing his opponents in the ring. Just before the big championship, the fighter and his manager have a big row and the kid drives off in a sports car, only to crash into a truck. Though his girlfriend (Karen Kirishima) survives, the boxer wakes up to learn that his hand is horribly crushed. His career is finished until the manager discovers a veterinarian who -- testing the boundaries of modern medical science -- fashions a robot fist. About that same time, the boxer learns of a bizarre fascist cult dedicated to wiping out the weak and deformed, including and especially boxers with robot fists. Hard-hitting action ensues.
