When Max has trouble sleeping because of his worries of failing the 5th grade, Vic suggests to George that Max should take boxing lessons to keep his worries off of school. At first, George is concerned that Angie won't like the idea of Max boxing, but he and Vic decide to not tell her. After boxing, Max accidently gives himself a black eye while taking off his gloves. When Angie discovers Max's black eye and that he's been boxing, she's furious at George and Vic at first for not telling her, but decides to let Max continue boxing. During a boxing tournament, Max gets a concussion which puts an end to him boxing anymore.
