Around the year 1954, Doc Louis achieved fame as a heavyweight boxer in the United States. When he becomes a coach in the sport decades later, he comes across Little Mac who aspires to become a professional boxer. Eventually, Doc decides to take on Little Mac and trains him throughout his journey to become a professional boxer. When Mac is in between rounds, Doc will advise Mac on his opponent’s weakness or uncover a trick that Mac can exploit in order to win the match.
If you play the sparring match against Doc in the video game Punch-Out!!, you can witness Doc throwing Star Punches at you. The move he came up with, Doc gets a star off of you by throwing a very quick hook before throwing his Star Punch. There’s a few moments where Doc pulls out a chocolate bar and if you happen to knock it out of his hands, he will take off his track jacket to reveal a jaguar shirt underneath.
