Frankie (John Darrow), a young prizefighter, wins a fixed boxing match as part of a crime boss's (Matthew Betz) plan to have him build up a following and then have him throw a championship fight.

The crime boss orders Frankie to stay away from Mary, while continuing to arrange for Frankie to win more fights. Just before Frankie's fight with the champion, he and the boss have an argument.
