Synopsis

Cyclone Hickey, a ham prizefighter who lives in an East Side tenement, is a joke to the public, a pest to matchmakers, and a hero to little Mamie Judd, the factory girl who lives across the hall from him in Maggie Callahan's boardinghouse. Mamie induces sportswriter Johnny Trump to take her savings and manage Cyclone, but when Cyclone becomes overconfident and insults Johnny and Mrs. Callahan, they give up on him and he fails to win matches. Mrs. Callahan, ill in bed, hears a radio account of a losing bout and implores Johnny to go to the ring and advise him; Cyclone wins the day and is happily united with Mamie.
