It only took “Gearless” Joe three months to jab his way from the underground circuit slums to top of the boxing world, becoming the first-ever champion of Megalonia.
But seven years after Joe’s meteoric rise, he finds himself back where he started, hiding behind numerous scars and a new ring name: Nomad.
