Storyline

The coming "champ" decides he is so good he can go around a Dub like a Cooper around a Barrel. He books up with a Foxy Manager. They arrange to pick out Soft Ones to begin with and work up to the championship. They find a Has-Been. After the Coming Champ and the Physical Wreck sign articles, they begin training. Although the coming champ was satisfied his hard Punches would kill the poor old Has-Been, he begins to worry. When the battle opens the Has-Been does a marathon in pursuit of the Coming Champ. The Coming Champ was doing fine work until somebody turned off the Sun-Light. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A laugh from start to finish
26 December 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

By George Ade, which will be enjoyed by every person who attends motion picture theaters. It is a master conception and illustrates the difference between bombastic ideas and indifference. This picture is worth the price of admission to any theater where it is advertised regardless of the other attractions. The theme of the plot is a prize fight and the termination is a surprise all around. The whole thing is a laugh from start to finish. - The Moving Picture World, August 15, 1914
