Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

In this boxing drama, a young pugilist hopes his talent will be his ticket out of the ghetto. Sure enough, the welterweight slowly rises in the ranks until he finally gets a shot at challenging the champ. Unfortunately, the champ has offered to pay the young fighter a lot of money if he throws the fight. The fighter could use that money to marry his girl and get her away from her father. Thinking of her, he decides to take the dive, but his conscience intervenes at the last moment and he goes on to win. Fortunately, everything ends happily.
