Storyline

An honest boxer refuses to throw a fight for a gambler. They get into a fight and the boxer knocks the gambler out. Thinking he's killed him and believing that the police are after him, the horrified boxer runs off and takes to the road, promising never to box again. However, one day he comes upon a small but scrappy young kid who has the potential to be a champion. The former boxer takes the kid under his wing and trains him, but the kid's ensuing success starts to go to his head. Pretty soon he finds himself mixed up with gamblers, too.

Pretty Poor Boxing Movie
17 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those films that defies the laws of logic. A championship boxer slugs a mobster/ gambler. It doesn't really hurt him all that much. But the boxer takes it upon himself to hide out. He goes from job to job, barely making ends meet. He meets a young boxer in a hobo jungle. They escape a mob and go on the lam. As luck would have it, the guy is a pretty good lightweight, even though he prances around like a chicken and never keeps his hands up. We are led to believe that this skinny guy is going to hold off some pretty impressive boxers. Well, a whole bunch of circumstances work against him and he is put in the position of throwing a championship fight. The "Bomber," the former champ, is forced to sit in the back of the arena and puzzle over the whole thing. There are these amusing shots of him squirming in his seat, like his shorts are too tight. There are some pretty good boxing films out there. This is not one of them.
