Default Re: Forgotten great fighters, Part IX

Les Darcy.

I know I'm being parochial as an Australian but I really believe the World got robbed of an immortal with his untimely death.

As it stands he got a lot done being the dominant middleweight in the years between Ketchel and Greb,virtually cleaning out the division before the age of twenty.He did this a dominant fashion,without the benefit of no-decision fights,in a manner that was unheard of for that era.

It staggers to think what he may have achieved considering people like Tex Rickard thought he was a legititmate threat to Jess Willard even as a middleweight.

A great unfulfilled talent.
