Golden Boy was the 81st overall episode of Sanford and Son. Also the 19th episode of Season Four, it first aired February 7, 1975.

Episode synopsisEdit

Fred hopes to get rich quick by becoming co-owner of a boxer dubbed Junior Joe Louis. It then becomes Fred and Grady's job to get Junior into fighting shape before Friday's bout.

Episode summaryEdit

Fred (Redd Foxx) spends the 50 dollars his son Lamont was saving for truck repairs to purchase a half-interest in boxer Junior Joe Louis (Barry Wright). Promised a return of 500,000 dollars on his investment, Fred takes over management of Junior Joe himself. Not surprisingly, Fred messes things up, culminating in a disastrous exhibition bout with poor Lamont. Future Charlie's Angel's TV series co-star David Doyle makes a guest appearance as Clancy Fitzgerald, a fight promoter, and Hank Rolike also appears in this episode as Yarby, a friend of Fred and Junior's manager.
