Default Irish Patsy Cline

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."

Darling Jimenez always says Gamboa isn't the most powerful he faced. Marty Robbins is.

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...

one reference i found..."a Ripley cartoon on lightweight contender "Irish Patsy" Cline entitled "New York's Latest Lightweight Contender" from November 3, 1916, shows up in the Vancouver daily over a year later "After World's Title."'

i can't find much of anything on this dude...

They fought for the first time in February 1915, and based on 6 local next-day reports, Leonard did have the better of the fight.
Anyway, that was Damon Runyon's opinion n 1930, and he started writing sports around 1906, if I'm not mistaken.

I just made a correction on Boxrec for his 8/24/1916 bout with Leo Johnson. Have a look and tell me what you think. Sounds like a win for Cline to me, but I bumped it up to a draw rather than the win originally listed for Johnson. Until I can figure out if Jack Kincaid's opinion outweighs the other sources or not.

Brooklyn Daily Eagle voted for Cline. NY Herald had it a draw. Naturally, the colored papers, NY Age (Aug 31) and Indianapolis Freeman (Sept 2) had Johnson the victor.
