An easy way to start this quest is to go to The Golden Sturgeon and find Master Claytop inside. Talk to him to setup a match between you and Georgius 'Piledriver' Georg. Before you start the fight though, Claytop will pull you to the side and asks that you throw the match, and will pay you 80 , on top of doubling what you bet (meaning you could get a max. of 240 ). You'll also be able to net an extra 50 by throwing it.
If you agree and lose you'll be able to fight Georgius again for real. You can also simply decline and fight for the win (note that agreeing doesn't mean you have to lose either, you can choose to go back on your word). Despite Master Claytop remarking you'll regret not taking his offer (or agreeing to but then defeating Georgius anyways) nothing bad appears to come from it. Regardless what you choose, once you defeat Georgius you'll earn 25 .
The other two opponents are simple fistfights:
- Archibald O'Neill is located just inside Portside Gate's archway, in the small fenced in area
- Iron Mortimer is located to the east of Southern Gate
Once you defeat all three, you'll be directed to Durden, out in Farcorners. Despite being told to fight after sundown, they'll be out there at any time of day to fight. Once Durden is defeated you'll earn 75 and double your bet, completing the quest.
