Jimmy West (Howard Lawrence) is a washed-up boxer who decides to become the manager of a promising pugilist. He takes on Johnny Carlos (Vic Campos) as a client. Although a gifted fighter, Johnny hates his job. A sexual encounter with a willing, blonde female finds Johnny unable to perform. The two men end up in bed together in this uneven exploitation feature that is tame in comparison to similar subject matter in other films.
