When the gang's resident tough guy Ashley is drugged during a bare-knuckle fight against a fighter from a rival family of travellers, Vinnie steps up to fight a rematch in his stead.

Further details

Vinnie, Dylan, Erin and the boys set out to support Ash who's been challenged to a bare knuckle fight against a fighter from a rival traveller family. As an accomplished boxer, Ash is in for the win, but all bets are off for the gang when he ends up in hospital after the match. Vinnie suspects foul play and sets out to fight for the honour of his friend.

Meanwhile, with her college course and relationship with Dylan going from strength to strength, nothing seems to be getting in Erin's way, but as Vinnie faces the herculean fight of his life, a long kept secret is about to change everything.
