I haven't done any research on him, but maybe somebody has? Any write-ups on him (not the next-day reports)? Today I stumbled upon a quote by Damon Runyon, Jan 25, 1930:
"The cleverest boxer I ever saw wasn't Packy McFarland, but a kid called Irish Patsy Cline, of New York."
Irish Patsy Cline was a clever boxer who lost only one bout in his first 34 fights,so clever was he...But he just wasn't as "clever" as the LW immortal Benny Leonard who beat Cline in 1914...
