Former heavyweight champion Roy “Slag” McGurk prides himself the king of the Bowery in early 20th Century New York by waving at the tourists, keeping order, and impressing local and yokel alike. In reality, he is the bouncer and enforcer for local saloon keeper Mike Glenson (Edward Arnold), kept afloat thanks to the generosity of local pawnshop proprietress (and sometime girlfriend) Mamie Steeple (Aline MacMahon). A pair of sucker punches are headed Slag’s way in the form of former-boxing protégé-turned-street-salvationist Johnny Burden (a baby-faced Cameron Mitchell) and orphaned English lad Nipper (Dean Stockwell). While Slag tries to help Johnny with his romance with Glenson’s daughter Caroline (Dorothy Patrick), Johnny, in turn, appeals to Slag’s better nature. It’s an appeal that Slag needs to heed when Child Services threatens to separate him from the Nipper. But Slag’s only ever lost one fight!
