Monkees in the Ring
Back Home Up Next


A greedy boxing manager tries to make a fortune on "Dynamite Davy Jones" by training Davy as a boxer, then fixing his bouts to build him up to the championship and finally take him down. However, due to some Monkee mayhem and sheer coincidence (or Providence, depending on your view), the plan ultimately fails and Davy is upheld as a boxing champion. He even knocks himself out at the end! King David could have told everyone involved what would happen to the oppressor of his namesake: "The wicked draw the sword and bend the bow to bring down the poor and needy, to slay those whose ways are upright. But their swords will pierce their own hearts, and their bows will be broken" (Psalm 37:14-15).
