The Plot…

“One Round” Jack Sander (Brisson) is a carnival fighter.  Sander takes on all-comers and has never been beaten.  Then one day, a big man enters the ring.  The fight is brutal and tough, but in the end the big man wins.  It turns out the huge challenger is none other than Bob Corby, the Australian Heavyweight Champ.

Corby is impressed with Sander’s fighting ability and offers to help make him a pro. Truth be told, Corby is more interested in helping himself to Sander’s fiancée.
