[ Story ]

A live-action adaptation of Takamori Asao and Chiba Tetsuya's eponymous comic, regarded as a brilliant achievement in Japanese manga history. Two boxing rivals who let their fists do the talking engage in a fierce battle that will determine both of their fates. The director is Sori Fumihiko, who helmed the sports manga adaptation Ping Pong. In the late 1960s, a slum-dwelling delinquent named Yabuki Joe (Yamashita Tomohisa) is scouted by former boxer Tange Danpei (Kagawa Teruyuki) for his exceptional pugilistic ability, but he gets into trouble and is sent to a juvenile reformatory where he meets professional fighter Rikiishi Toru (Iseya Yusuke).
