DARCY, JAMES LESLIE (1895-1917), boxer and folk hero, was born on 31 October 1895 at Stradbroke, near Maitland, New South Wales, second son of native-born parents Edward Darcy (or Dorsey), labourer and later a share-farmer, and his wife Margaret, née O'Rourke. His grandparents came from Tipperary, Ireland. Leaving Oakhampton Public School in 1907 Les worked as a carter before being apprenticed at 15 to a blacksmith at East Maitland. As his father was at times unemployed, and his elder brother was partly crippled, Les was called upon to help his large family.

he is pictured above in 1910 at the age of 15

he died from pneumonia at the age of 22

excellent pics from you dkos...fair play.


probably everyones seen this fight....but, this version of the highlights is an exceptionally well edited video i think...normally i dont like some of the music used on some boxing videos on youtube, it spoils them, but in this case i think it really enhances well as that it is absolutely crystal clear of my favourite boxing videos on youtube at the moment this...
edited superbly and presented like an epic scene from a film...had the laptop hooked up to the telly and speakers and it looks fantastic on a big screen..

so..if you do watch...full volume and full screen...720p setting if you can..

another one of those great fights from madison square garden...although quarry was beaten handily enough in the end by frazier, for a couple of rounds he give him a great argument, so much so that the ring magazine made it their 'fight of the year 1969'...
the video as you can see here is superb, really well recorded, makes for fantastic viewing..
