You know what fight inspired this.
Jackie vs Brad Allen Round 1 - from Gorgeous. Jackie's character's fighting skills have withered due to neglect.
In Round 2 against Brad Allen, Jackie's character trained a bit and got his head put back on straight. And he... learns to give his foes a creepy smile in the midst of getting assaulted.
Since Jackie's apparently versed in boxing, how would you say he fairs in the ring against Balboa?
Could Jackie handle Balboa at Rockys's 1-2? Could he step up to the Rocky from III or IV? Could the 'withered' Jackie from the first fight take down the 'retired' Balboa from Rocky V?
