Danny turns out to be a winner in the ring, but he loses his sight in a dirty bout. Danny strives to make himself useful, and he serves as a role model for Eddie to realize his dream of appearing at Carnegie Hall.

While Danny's love for Peggy never wavers, he doesn't want her to see him after he's been hurt.
