Billy attends a charity function, where another boxer disses him and a fight breaks out. One of his team pulls a gun and fires a shot to stop the violence, but Maureen is hit. She dies in Billy’s arms.

Grief stricken, Billy loses the will to live, but realizes that Leila now needs him more than ever. However, his manager has mismanaged his funds and Billy finds himself on the street. Leila is taken away by the courts and put into the same system that he once was a part of when he was a kid.
