It turns out Phillips was the underdog, but Mr. D. owns both fighters-- he advises Junior, ""It's okay to bet, but never gamble."" (laugh track) The hotline rings; it's an Overstreet sighting, in Louisville, Kentucky. Mr. D. sends Wendell and Harry.

(They have no idea who Buddy is.) Meantime, back in New York, Mr. D. and Junior decide to watch Phillips' next fight in Memphis; Junior tells dad it's 1,122 miles to Memph
