Unlikely boxing star Tommy McCoy (Robert Taylor) is led to the sport by his bum father, Brian (Frank Morgan). After accidentally killing his friend (William Gargan) during a match, Tommy forsakes boxing, only to return for the money. Teaming up with powerful bookie Jim Cain (Edward Arnold), Tommy again rises to the top, earning Cain a fortune while falling in love with his daughter, Sheila (Maureen O'Sullivan). After a mobster realizes Cain has swindled him, Tommy must take charge.
