For streetfighting, Muggs (Leo Gorcey) continuously gets into trouble, and nobody really doubts that reform school is the only place for him - nobody but Sergeant Tom Brady (Warren Hull), "a copper who wears his heart on his badge", who thinks that Muggs should train to be a professional boxer. Eventually, Brady can persuade Muggs to move in with him and his mother (Martha Wentworth) and train for the Golden Gloves Championship. But soon enough, gangsters Slats Morrison (Eddie FosterI) and Dorgan (Dennis Moore) appear on the scene and offer him a grand if he throws the fight. And Muggs even pretends to accept, while he is really collecting evidence against them ...

A parallel story concerns Danny Breslin (Bobby Jordan), kid brother of Sgt Brady's sweetheart Mary (Charlotte Henry) and former friend of Muggs, who has always been the good kid, but at one point the lure of money was big enough to make him throw in with crook Monk (Bobby Stone) - which eventually gets him into a shootout, with Sgt Brady being the adversary. It is only then that Danny finds back to his good self and saves the life of Brady, even if he catches a bullet himself ... and it's the day of Muggs' big fight.

For some reason, only hours before the fight, Muggs decides to visit Danny in the hospital and learns he needs blood - and since the two share the same blood type he gladly gives his blood.

Later, at the boxing ring, Muggs is feeling a bit dizzy because of his bloodloss ... but he wins the fight - which everyone thought he would throw - anyhow before passing out. And he can finally deliver evidence against Slats Morrison and Dorgan to the police, who promptly arrest them ...

 

Ok entry into the (not so great) East Side Kids-series, a typical boxing- and crime-drama. Obviously the film was made on the cheap, but it plays quite nicely if one expects nothing spectacular.
