This early 80s BBC sitcom revolved around wide boy Pete Dodds (Robert Lindsay), an amateur boxer with plenty of talent, but who was more concerned with larking around in the ring.

To get him focused, his manager Tom Sprake (Lee Montague) hooks Pete up with a new trainer, Dave Locket (Ken Jones).

In true sitcom fashion, Dodds and Locket’s mutual hatred pays dividends – both for laughs and for Pete’s success in between the ropes.
