One hundred and a few odd years ago, a mild mannered postman lived in Paris with his pet bird.  He was a humble man who didn't complain about his life.  He lived in a tiny apartment with no windows.  Everyday he would deliver the mail and then go home to his tiny home.  When his boss showed him a new contraption called an electric autocar that would deliver the mail much faster.  Now Lalouche was out of a job and in fear of losing his tiny apartment.  When he saw a poster recruiting boxers, he decided to give it a try.  But could this tiny little man hold his own in a boxing ring with The Piston, The Anaconda and other famous boxers?
