Storyline

Ex-prize fighter Mark Miller, now a sports writer, sets out to expose a murderous gambling ring led by Dano Rizzo. He first learns about the ring when when a fighter dies as a result of ring injuries in a mis-matched fight. The boxer took the fight because of his love for Doris Burton, actually the girl friend of Rizzo. Doris' brother Bill gets involved when Rizzo threatens to ruin the (questionable) good name of his sister, unless he helps the gang with some fixed bets. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
