When Biff Bower insults Furley at The Regal Beagle, Jack gets into an argument and it is to be settled with a boxing match between Jack and Biff. When the kids learn that Biff was a Golden Glove contender with 22 knockouts, the girls try to talk Jack out of fighting. But when Furley arrives, saying how this is the first time anyone's ever stood up for him, Jack is determined to go ahead with the fight. Jack is definitely getting the worst of the match until Janet intervenes and Biff accidentally knocks her out. Jack, desperately trying to go to Janet's aid, inadvertently knocks Biff out and is declared the winner.
