Eddie Scrap-Iron Dupris:
Only ever met one man I wouldn't wanna fight. When I met him he was already the best cut man in the business. Started training and managing in the sixties, but never lost his gift.
Eddie Dupris claims that a knockout is caused when the neck turns a certain degree after which the human body takes over and shuts itself down for safety reasons. While generally unknown, it is widely believed that a knockout is actually caused by the rattling of the brain against the skull causing severe trauma resulting in a concussion.
There are no opening credits after the title is shown.
