The first choice you can make is to tell Aaron that he should throw the fight. Your Cyberpunk 2077 character believes it might be safer for him to throw the fight, so he doesn’t end up into too much trouble now that the Scavenger’s are still out there, especially with Angie wanting to control him.

When Aaron reaches out to you as you progress through the Phantom Liberty expansion, he’ll tell you that he took the dive. Even though he left, he still feels like he’s in their pocket. Because of that, he’s not going to pursue his boxing career. However, instead of boxing, he’ll tell you that he’s taken up a boxing coach job, and is teaching children. This might be a better career for him in Cyberpunk 2077, rather than boxing.

After you wait a few days, Aaron will reach out to you. He’ll tell you that even though he didn’t throw the fight, he lost in the tenth round against his opponent. Still, he was glad he did it on his own terms. You’ll also get a text from his Coach about Aaron, and how he’s doing better, even if he doesn’t have the best career. Even if he has a lot of struggles moving forward, the decision to not throw the fight was a good one for Aaron to make.

However, by having Aaron take the dive, Coach Fred reaches out to you to tell you that Aaron hasn’t been this calm in a long time. It might be a better choice for you to make, narratively, rather than pushing him to continue his boxing career in Cyberpunk 2077.
