A brutal and uncomprimising tale of a boxer whose fight to the top is unhampered by ethics or gratitude. A hero to his fans, his friends know him to be a selfish egomaniac who allows nothing to stand in his way... not even a syndicate. After winning a fight he was supposed to throw, the mob has him attacked, and he is only forgiven through the intervention of a woman who becomes yet another pawn in his climb up the ladder. He ultimately is forced to re-enter the ring and confront his biggest opponent... himself.
