A bankrupt entrepreneur attempts to recoup some of her losses by getting a washed-out boxer she picked up as a tax loss back into the ring - an idea her protégé isn't fond of.
The movie's title was subtitled "A Glove Story" in promotional materials, the phrase being a parody of "A Love Story" with boxing and at the same time spoofing actor Ryan O'Neal's earlier hit Love Story (1970).
You have to tell me exactly what I do after the Kid wins. Do I just jump into the ring? Or do I apologize to the loser? Or maybe I just wave to the fans?
When Hillary and Kid are fighting in the ring at the end of the film, Kid calls Hillary, "Judy". Judy was Barbra Streisand's character's name in the last film that she and Ryan O'Neal did together, What's Up, Doc? (1972).
