    For con artist Gabriel Caine (James Woods), Diggstown is the promised land, legendary for its high-stakes boxing matches that attract high-rollers from miles around. Gabe, recognising a golden opportunity, bets the town`s powerful boss (Bruce Dern) that his fighter will defeat ten opponents in 24 hours. It`s far from a sure thing, though, since Gabe`s fighter is "Honey" Roy Palmer (Lou Gossett, Jr.), a cranky, over-the-hill 48-year-old who has just come out of retirement. But Roy comes out swinging, pulverising one contender after another, leading to a final exciting bout that may decide the ownership of the town itself!
