"This short provides an interesting early example of a Jewish screen character: the nebbish who dreams of physical prowess. The character, Moshe, is sad about not winning the heavyweight championship and decides on a rematch. Introduced at the fight as weighing 98 pounds, Moshe is afraid when the "champ" is introduced at 240 pounds. When his "second" administers dope via a syringe, Moshe, who has been losing up to that point, defeats the champ and is the hero. Then he wakes up and realizes it was all a dream"--Container.
