Synopsis


In a quest for empowerment, Luanne takes Tae-Bo classes. Hank approves because he thinks Luanne should learn to defend herself.

When Strickland's brother visits, he sees Luanne practicing Tae-Bo. He and Buck decide that Luanne would be a perfect female boxer. Hank is hesitant because he doesn't think female boxing is feminine, but Peggy insists that Luanne has talent.

Luanne easily wins her first bout against a housewife, and Buck and his brother start making money off Luanne's matches. Luanne becomes more confident with each win, but she is heartbroken to learn that Buck and his brother have been paying her opponents $50 to take a dive.

Meanwhile, Peggy is so excited for Luanne that she insults George Foreman's daughter, also a boxer. Peggy goads George's daughter into fighting Luanne.
