Synopsis
Archie takes his father's eyeglass prescription uptown where he is challenged by Reggie to a boxing match. When a trapeze knocks Reggie out before the match, Archie is thought to be a boxing star. He joins the boxing team and makes the middleweight class by half a pound. At the match, he is nearly knocked out, but saved when Mr. Weatherbee picks up the prescription and thinks it is Archie's.
