Plot Summary

Alice Woods, a New York newspaper reporter, is assigned to write a story on Martin, a middleweight fighter who has just lost the championship. Martin refuses to see her in his dressing room, and Alice must later force her way into the speakeasy that is his hangout. Martin refuses to speak with her, and she fabricates a story, writing that Martin is planning to make a comeback. Alice soon falls for the ex-champ and uses her ingenuity to prove that he has been sold down the river by his crooked manager, Cannon Delmont. Martin goes back into the ring on his own and, with Alice's encouragement, regains the middleweight crown.
