Volume 6 – No 2 27th May , 2010
It requires an amazing fellow to compile such an amazing fight record, but Cuddy DeMarco, certainly one of Pittsburgh’s greatest men of the ring, fits the character perfectly.
He started boxing at the tender age of 6.
He fought for three and a half years, winning 112 fights in a row before he as much as suffered a draw. Then he ran the string to138 bouts without a reverse.
In 12 years as a pro, he climbed in and out of the ring for 339 fights. He lost only 24 and was held to a draw in but 15. Most of his defeats came near the end of his turbulent and quite profitable career, when he admits he was through but hanging on for the purse.
Busy man, well Cuddy believes he holds some kind of record for taking part in four fights in four cities in four different states within the space of five days. He won two and drew in the other two.
FOUR BOUTS IN FIVE DAYS
He battled a 15 round draw with Pal Moran in New Orleans to start the week, beat Jack Zivic in Pittsburgh, Harry Felix in New York, drew a deep breath and met tough Johnny Indrisano in Boston, another draw.
Dapper |Dan, Cuddy was one of the originals. He still is today but the clothes he wore when he was earning the half million that came his way were his pride and joy.
