Can anyone remember this particular film? I remember watching it with my Dad many years ago. I cannot remember who is in it or how along ago it was made.

The storyline is about a talented boxer who goes "on the run" after committing or being accused of a crime. He hides out under an assumed name working at a boys club or home. The club/home is short on funds. The hero of the tale fights against a boxing champion giving exhibitions to hopefully win some cash. A detective/policeman is pursuing the said hero.

It is a fairly old film and not considered a classic I can imagine. Please excuse the vague details.

Anyone possibly remember the title?

Define 'fairly old'. 1920s? 1970s? If you don't know, then was it in black and white or colour?

Good question - thank you! I would say1950s/60s and very likely in black and white.
