Harry Dummy Mace (135997)

Australian born Mace was a pupil of Larry Foley and as his nickname implies, was a mute.

Possibly his most famous contest was for George Dawson's Lightweight title in April of 1891. Mace went within a whisker of knocking out his opponent in the fifth round, with only a clever bit of trickery by Dawson's seconds buying him valuable recovery time. The Champ recovered and went on to win in the seventeenth round.

Amongst his most notable victories were knockouts against Jim Burge and Billy Australian Smith.
