Boxing manager Jim Curtis (J.P. McGowan) insists that if Billy Griffin (Billy Sullivan, real-life nephew of heavyweight champion John L. Sullivan) wants to be with his daughter, Katherine (Ruth Dwyer), he must prove he can fight for her. Since Billy knows nothing at all about boxing, he gets knocked out and loses his memory when he tries to tackle Curtis. A former champion, however, has seen Billy's potential and starts training him. While still amnesia-stricken, Billy wins a number of fights. Curtis schedules a fight between him and Dillon (Phil Salvadore), and just before the bout, a blow on the head causes his memory to return. As a result, he almost loses the fight, but Katherine is on hand, taunting him, which inspires him to knock Dillon out cold. With this latest win, Billy and Katherine are united.
