If it weren't for the presence of real-life prize fighter and champion James J. Jeffries and a host of other former title holders, this would have been little more than a routine fight drama. Athletic star George Walsh plays the lead and manages to keep up with the big boys. Middleweight champion George Burke (Walsh) loses himself in wild living and as a result, loses his title. Nancy Lee (Alyce Mills), his sweetheart from his youth, is now an actress and she is determined to help him. She asks her wealthy lover, Wade Turner (Freeman Wood), to send Burke to his ranch in California. Turner agrees, but out of jealousy he tells his foreman to do everything he can to keep Burke from getting in shape. However, with the help of Jeffries' character, Burke manages to whip himself into fine form. He wins back the championship and earns Nancy's love.
