Jeff is hired by Paul Chandler to look into the background of his sister Laura Chandler's fiancé, boxer Chad Morrow, who Paul believes is solely after her trust money which Paul controls until Laura gets married. Besides boxing, Chad owns and operates a bar, the boxing solely to supplement his income for the future. Despite Chad refusing to speak to Jeff, Jeff initially doesn't seem to see anything unforeseen about Chad, that is until after his latest bout with Jack Delaney, the two who bring their fisticuffs outside the ring in their seeming dislike for each other. Jack's body is later found in his dressing room, he beaten to death, Chad the prime suspect. In asking questions, Jeff discovers that others don't want him to discover the truth behind Delaney's death, those questions about possible match fixing by Delaney and his team. If those match fixing rumors are true, Jeff has to find out the angle as Chad was heavily favored to win the bout despite it going the distance.
