Athletic star William Fairbanks stars in this cheaply made Columbia drama. Jim Davis (Fairbanks) likes having a good time, and his extravagance is a strain on his father (Tom Ricketts). To discourage him, the elder Davis claims to be bankrupt, which means that Jim has to fend for himself. When Jim sees a man on the street insulting pretty Mary Corbett (Phyllis Haver), he angrily pummels him. It turns out the man was Battling Wilson (Leon Beauman), who is the state boxing champ. With Mary's encouragement, Jim decides to challenge Wilson in the ring. Before the fight, however, Jim is doped, and as a result, Wilson easily knocks him out. Jim still gets his revenge when he trails the boxer to his dressing room and beats him to a pulp. Jim's heroics win Mary's love, and he and his father are eventually reconciled.
