Lefty laments how he and his girl Helen is waiting for him in town and that they were going to get married after the match. With the coach driver dead, the Two-Gun Kid agrees to help pilot the stage the rest of the way to Julesberg.

They arrive in town to find the locals fighting with each other in the streets. However when Helen arrives she pretends that the Two-Gun Kid is really Lefty in front of the sheriff. The next thing he knows it the Kid is being ushered into a room and asked to put on boxing togs. When the Kid initially refuses the sheriff pulls his gun on him. Suddenly, Helen and Lefty's agent enter the room and to confuse matters worse, Helen then tells them that the man she kissed outside and said was Lefty is not really the man she wishes to marry.
