Battling Maxo is a robot, or, to be exact, an android, definition: an automaton resembling a human being. Only these automatons have been permitted in the ring since prizefighting was legally abolished in 1968. This is the story of that scheduled six-round bout, more specifically the story of two men shortly to face that remorseless truth: that no law can be passed which will abolish cruelty or desperate need - nor, for that matter, blind animal courage. Location for the facing of said truth a small, smoke-filled arena just this side of the Twilight Zone.This popular long-running series centered around paranoia, uncertainty and bizarre events, often with a wicked sense of humor and an unexpected twist. Series creator Rod Serling called The Twilight Zone, a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man... a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It lies between the pit of mans fears, and the summit of his knowledge.
