Champion plot

"Fighting or loving, he was the... CHAMPION"

Poor but ambitious Midge Kelly finds out after protecting his handicapped brother Connie from a group of robbers that he is a good boxer, even a natural one. He wins boxing matches with ease and eventually even becomes world champion. But then the decay sets in. Kelly enjoys the opulence and abandons his best friends. Despite being married to the faithful Palmer, he begins a love affair with the attractive blonde Grace, the wife of his opponent's manager. Kelly seems to be losing his physical powers and is arrogant, cocky and mean.
