In "The Great White Hope" episode, Marge trains in mixed martial arts with a coach reminiscent of Mike Tyson. At the match, she takes the mic to denounce the violence of the sport, but everyone has already left the arena.


In "Baby, You Knock Me Out", Lois takes up competitive boxing in as a way to channel her frustration with Peter. She eventually retires but fights in on more match against Deirdre Jackson, whose vicious reputation precedes her.
