Megalo Box Synopsis

"Shut up and do what they tell you, that's the cowardly choice." These are the words of Junk Dog, an underground fighter from Megalo Box, the evolved version of boxing that uses mechanical elements known as "gear" to improve the speed and performance of its users. Despite the great potential this young man possesses as a boxer, his illegal nature forces him to earn a living by participating in fights arranged by his boss Gansaku Nanbu. That all changes, however, when Yuuri, the Megalo Box champion, steps into his ring in the guise of another challenger. Junk Dog, who has retired in a single lap, faces the challenge, "If you're serious about fighting me again, jump in my ring."

Junk Dog is supported by the criminal syndicate responsible for its arranged fights and enters Megalonia - a tournament that spans the world and determines the strongest megaloboxer of all. Not having a real name, he adopts the nickname "Joe" as he begins his climb from the bottom of the fighter rankings. With only three months to qualify, Joe faces opponents he never thought would match his rival's challenge.
