SYNOPSIS

At a training camp preparing for a heavyweight championship bout are Georges La Verne with Pop O'Keefe, his manager; Nosey Bartlett, the camp cook; and Gink Schiner, a lazy, second-rate fighter who is to appear in a preliminary before the big fight. Although Georges is pursued by society girl Norine Lloyd, he is more interested in Sue Burke, his advisor and childhood playmate; Toots, Gink's sweetheart, is constantly concerned over Gink's flirting with pretty girls.
