"Matthew?! Oh you're Battlin' Jack's boy, oh you amateur. Now I know your name, nothing to stop me from bloodying the street with your corpse, just like I did to your old man!"
―Roscoe Sweeney to Matt Murdock[src]

Roscoe Sweeney is a corrupt boxing organizer who often fixed fights by using blackmail and extortion. When any of his fighters attempted to betray him, he would have them murdered. Sweeney was later kidnapped by Elektra Natchios and the son of Jack Murdock who beat him nearly to death in revenge.


Corrupt Boxing

"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[src]

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.[1]

Captured by Elektra

"You don't remember me? You killed my father."
"Well I hate to break it to you son, but I killed a lot of guys' dads."
"Then let me help you... he hit hard, like this."
Matt Murdock and Roscoe Sweeney[src]
This section needs a rewrite

After being in hiding for years, Sweeney was found by Matt Murdock's then girlfriend Elektra Natchios. She captured him and brought Murdock to him to get his revenge. Murdock beat Sweeney, but couldn't kill him, choosing instead to call the police and report Sweeney's location. When Murdock looked back, Natchios was gone.[2]
