Amirah prepares for her biggest fight yet — against her father — as she trains Lachy to challenge her brother in the ring. Amirah is determined to prove to Sami she belongs in the boxing world and knows it will take defeating him to do so. Jess hopes to redeem herself in a rematch against the formidable Jinx and while Lachy hopes to make it two from two in his second ever boxing match, he is also is concerned Amirah is taking her personal issues with her father into the ring.
