The Early Years
 
The fighters I'm going to post on here are from the 'pioneer' era. They are all fighters which have little or no documented fights but who were part of the scene in there era.

As an example the first file will be Patsy Kerrigan who has only two bouts on Boxrec, but who apparently gave as good as he got against Jack McAuliffe. Obviously the ratings are highly speculative but help pad out any early universes.

Any comments or research help would be appreciated.

Please post any files that you think would be relevant.

Once again, these files are speculative so use them at your peril!

Original file source - unsure.

Only two fights on Boxrec. Little other data to go on. He was part of John L Sullivans 'travelling circus'. According to the 'Legendary Boxers' book by Billy Edwards he 'held his own' during a ten round draw with Jack McAuliffe.

Any additional information would be appreciated.

Only a couple of fights against database opponents.

The stand out was a 27 round KO loss to Jack 'NP' Dempsey. He apparently received a terrible beating but impressed his opponent with his bravery. Dempsey refused to give Fogarty a rematch.

Three fights on Boxrec.

IBRO -- Mike Cushing

The IBRO article gives a lot better outline, although he only met a handful of fighters that are in the database.

He was disqualified for holding when he fought Jack McAuliffe in the final of the Billy Madden tournament.

I had two of three.

I've added a fair bit to the 'front page' and messed with the ratings.

As we go along they will mainly be fighters that aren't in my uni but who I have a photo for.

BTW I bought a book on the history of South African boxers, it has a load of good mugshots. I'll get round to posting them soon. In the meantime if there are any you are 'desperate' for let me know and I'll see if they are in the book.

Seeing how I haven't even transferred over my picture file from 2.0 to 2.5, I'm not sure how much pics matter to me LOL

Cyber Boxing Zone -- Larry Foley

Foley was a pioneer in early boxing styles and techniques and trained many fighters in Australia. His school of boxing in Sydney was famous and produced such fighters as Peter Jackson, Frank "Paddy" Slavin, Tom Lees, Mick Dooley and Jim Hall.

His only fight in Boxrec was a disqualification loss to Tom Allen. He had come out of retirement for the fight and was in bad condition. He died not long after the fight from 'alcoholic excesses'.

Previously he had won a couple of open weight competitions, once beating Bat Mullins in the final.

He was also English Middleweight Champion.

Many thanks Tom!

I am looking forward to getting my universe advanced another 50/60 years to take advantae of these. I'm about 25 years into it now.

Pts victory over Bat Mullins in 1889
Stoppage loss to Billy McCarthy in 1892
Pts victory over George Chrisp to win the English title.

I think I had rated and posted Charlie Davis some time ago along with Denny Harrington.
Bill Mathews' book was a major source for me. Glad to see that someone else has a copy. I did a few of the Bow cup winners. It was right before the website meltdown a few years ago. The meltdown got me sidetracked and I never picked the ball back up.

Hi Bear

I picked up a copy on ebay.

Any fighters you fancy posting on here who have no or little Boxrec 'form' would be great.

Also if you think any I am posting are garbage let me know:)

Held 5 bouts against database opposition.

WPts Tom Ireland(twice)
LKO1 Dick Burge
WTKO7 Dick Burge (Recorded elsewhere as a foul disq)
LKO5 Eddie Connolly

His 'English Boxing Champions' record of W31/L3/D2 is made up of relative unknowns(to me anyway) leaving him very difficult to rate.

Another tricky one!

Only info I could find on him comes from 'English Boxing Champions', where he has a W19/L7/D1 record.

It is difficult to glean how many stopage victories he had.

He was the English Featherweight Champion and held the English '9 stone' title.

He had 4 database opponents.

LPts4 Stanton Abbot
L10 Tom Ireland
W3 Fred Johnson
WKO2 Fred Johnson
