"This is the only sport in the world where two guys get paid for doing something they'd be arrested for if they got drunk and did it for nothing."

Midge Kelly and his brother Connie are traveling by railroad cars across America when Midge is offered a fight by a boxing promoter. Despite being beaten badly he is asked by a trainer, Tommy Haley if he wants to train and become a professional boxer. Midge refuses, but when his dreams of life in California crumble he is forced to reconsider and set out on a career as a fighter. As he improves his boxing skills Midge finds fame and looks for any advantage he can from women and other trainers who are willing to help him.
