Jack Jefferson is the boxing heavyweight champion of early 1910s America. But as a black man, he's not only fighting other boxers, but discrimination and prejudice as well. The boxing fans and press resent the idea of a black champion and are actively searching for a ``great white hope'' that can defeat him. But it's Jefferson's activities outside the ring, primarily involving the white Eleanor Bachman, that may prove to be his downfall.
