A former fighter's younger brother decides that he too wants to enter the squared circle and so leaves his native Maine to try his luck in New York. Things go well until he finds himself entangled with mobsters who try to convince him to throw his fights. Meanwhile, his big brother, who simply vanished a few years after stubbornly refusing to take a dive during a major fight, hears about his younger sibling's dilemma and shows up to stop him. He succeeds, but the gangsters go for brutal revenge. Fortunately, a sportswriter hears about the mess and calls in the cops.
