Storyline

After defeating a prominent, highly-ranked heavyweight fighter in convincing and sensational fashion, "Gunner" Malone hopes to get a shot at the world-champion title, but is foiled by the retirement by the fighter who holds it. Later, Russ Conway, a Texas cowboy "Gunner" has taken under his wing, becomes the leading contender for the title through the scheming of a newspaper sports writer; but Rush refuses to fight because he is in love with "Gunner's" sister, Mary, and has promised her he will quit the game---and trickery follows. The low-number PCA certificate on this film is because the film set on a Warner Brothers' shelf for two years after it was made. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Trivia

Although this movie was basically completed in 1936 and reviewed under the title "Don't Pull Your Punches" in January 1937 by "The Motion Picture Herald" and "The Hollywood Reporter," it was released in 1938. The new title was probably due to the success of Kid Galahad (1937), making it look like a sequel. See more »
