Prizefighter Gunner Malone (Barton MacLane) spots Rush Conway (Wayne Morris) in a street brawl and begins training the talented youngster to be a champ. Rush's sister (June Travis) soon becomes romantically involved with Gunner, but things get complicated when the rapidly rising young

fighter is slated to battle his mentor. He can't bring himself to go up against his would-be brother-in-law, but Gunner, with the help of a sportswriter, tricks the kid into the ring. Although every cliche is intact, this standard fight story is well packaged nonetheless, and MacLane gives a fine

performance that transcends the material. Look for an appearance by ex-fighter-turned-movie actor Maxie Rosenbloom.
