Mickey and his team of cornermen never seem to have much luck in the boxing world; the fighters they manage always end up losing and, after a disastrous last outing, no one wants to work with them. Until, that is, they sign Sid Sparks, a young boxer whose fast hands and winning ways catapult them into a world of success they’ve never known. However, you can’t win all the time and soon Mickey must choose between the life he’s enjoying, and the well-being of his young charge.
