- "He don't wanna do it he don't do it. A man makes his choice, and we make ours."
"You wanna step into the ring and see how that plays out?"
- ―Roscoe Sweeney and Jack Murdock
When Jack Murdock's son Matthew was blinded in an accident, Murdock became desperate for money and approached Sweeney, who began paying Murdock in exchange for losing his boxing matches. Sweeney and Silke set up a fight between Murdock and Carl Creel, which Murdock would be forced to lose. Although Murdock was reluctant, Sweeney was able to convince him that the money would be worth it. Murdock had a change of heart, however, and during the fight he was able to beat Creel. Before he could escape, Sweeney's men tracked him down and murdered him.

After being in hiding for years, Roscoe was found by Matthew's then girlfriend Elektra. She captured him and brought Matt to him to get his revenge. Matt beat Roscoe, but couldn't kill him, choosing instead to call the police and report Roscoe's location. When Matt looked back, Elektra was gone.
