Snub plays a rich guy who wants to impress the ladies with his virility. So he pays a tough boxer to take a dive in a staged fight, though the fight definitely does not go anything like expected. Plus, the idea of skinny and weak looking Snub as a boxer is pretty funny as Chaplin or Harold Lloyd looked absolutely macho compared to him! An interesting film that is sure to please silent comedy fans, though others might find it slow going.
