yeah Darcy doesnt get talked about much on this board becuase not many no about him.

but from what ive read about him that the USA wouldnt let him fight because they new he wouldnt take dives or throw fights which was common back in the early 1900's. Even some boxing experts and writers of boxing thought if he was able to fight in the USA he wouldnt lose.

so they didnt let him fight so then he died of Pnuemonia because he couldnt afford to feed himself properly.

McGoorty who was a former Middleweight champ said later on in his life that Al McCoy was great but that Aussie kid Darcy was tougher.

id say if Darcy was aloud to fight in the USA he would have more than likely beaten Al McCoy aswell as the great Harry Greb. i truely believe that because he had a chin of granite.

actually.. from the list above

picking up the 'a-z of world boxing' right above my head

the only one to get a mention is rose. (the fact he won the title at 19)
dunno if that's counts for much.

Carl Baron is far better than you.

Maybe start with the sit down comedy clubs first. They might give you a run.
