Licensed citizens live a healthy life in an advanced city. Whereas the unlicensed citizens live in slums.
Moving on to Junk Dog- who basically fights as a fixed player. His coach Gansaku Nanbu uses him to run his illegal ring. One day, Junk Dog accidentally crashes his motorcycle on Shirato group’s head Yukiko Shirato. To defend himself Junk Dog gets involved in a fight with Yukiko’s bodyguard Yuri. Yuri is one of the best Megalo Box fighters.
Yuri beats Junk Dog and challenges him to fight him in the Magnolia tournament. To get into the Magnolia, Junk Dog forges his id with the help of Nanbu and Fujimaki. Thus Junk Dog gets a new identity of Joe. Now they only have 3 months to prepare Joe for the tournament. In the end, Joe wins.
