Based on The Mexican, a novel by Jack London, this is the story of a young man whose family, girlfriend and village were destroyed by the forces of a ruthless dictator. When he joins the revolutionaries who are seeking his overthrow, he finds that his boxing abilities are perhaps a means for him to make a contribution to the effort. He takes on a big-prized match with one of the best Mexican fighters to help subsidize the guerrilla efforts. Along the way, romance takes its course in the ranks of the revolutionaries.
