The Fixer was a boxing organizer who often fixed fights by using blackmail and extortion. Daredevil's father, Battlin' Jack Murdock, was signed by Fixer, without Murdock's knowledge, and Sweeney fixed fights to build up Murdock's reputation as a comeback fighter. Eventually, the Fixer ordered Murdock to throw a fight against Rocky Davis. Murdock refused and, after winning the fight, Fixer had him murdered. When Daredevil went to seek justice for his father's murder, the Fixer died of a heart attack while running from the costumed hero.[1]

  • In the 2003 Daredevil film, the Fixer was not used as Jack Murdock's employer, instead a new character named Fallon was introduced in his place. However, the novelization of the 2003 film does give Fallon the nickname "Fixer."
