Hometown - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

20(4)-14-12; 14NC

Brannigan was a tough Pittsburgh featherweight that was stopped only once in sixty pro bouts. His opponent list reads a who's-who list:

Opponent / Record Against
Johnny Kilbane / 1-2-0; 2NC
Johnny Ray / 4-2-0
Monte Attell / 0-1-4
Eddie Campi / 1-0-0
Dick Loadman / 1-0-0
Benny Kaufman / 0-0-0; 1NC
Kid Williams / 0-0-0; 1NC
Johnny Coulon / 0-1-0

Patsy also lost to Frankie Burns and Frank Thorn at the end of his career. With better or perhaps any management, Brannigan may have been a top flight featherweight. In his first 20 bouts, he fought Monte Atell 4 times, Jonny Kilbane 3 times and fought his pro debut against the experienced South African Yankee Schwartz. Brannigan had one fight with the world title on the line against Johnny Kilbane. The title did not officially change hands as the result was a no decision but the newspaper decision went to Brannigan.
