Movie Plot:

The ranch owned by Red Ryder and his aunt, the Duchess, is being used as the training site for “Gentleman Jim” Corbett for his upcoming fight in Carson City, Nevada for the heavyweight championship against Bob Fitzsimmons.

Molly McVey, the daughter of a U.S. Senator, crusading against prize-fighting in Nevada, complicates matters somewhat when she conceives the bright idea of having Corbett kidnapped, thus causing the cancellation of the fight. The two men she hires to do the kidnapping also add to the complications by kidnapping Ryder instead of Corbett. Meanwhile, a gang of crooks, led by McKean, descend on the town intent on looting the town and also making off with the fight proceeds.
