    Default Charles "Kid" McCoy - Boxing Overviews - (New Youtube Series)

    Been toying with what to do on the boxing youtube channel I have. I decided to do brief rundowns of fighters careers and see how things go.

    I hope you enjoy, please like and subscribe if you do.

    I did not know any of that. That would make a good movie on many aspects of his life.

    I honestly did not know any of those things about him and I have heard of him.

    It is amazing stories about fixed fights, murdering his wife and suicide. Very sad but also interesting. These old time fighters were strong and interesting characters.

    The clip was short and straight to the point so it is easy to view.

    It must take you some time to do the research and I know a couple of posters on here are interested in the old time fighters.

    I have read up for years and years about fighters. For example Kid McCoy, I have known this stuff nearly 15 years.

    I also have encyclopedias of boxing in the house that I read a lot.

    I enjoy the research.

    I appreciate the feedback mate.

    From what I have read about Tommy Ryan, he was kind of unpleasant in his own right.

    Going to check it out later tonight. Also mate don't knock responses or lack there of too hard. It's not a you thing or this site thing. To be honest much of boxing feedback is stuck in the now. It's almost anti black n white film sometimes and in large part, unfortunately, when fans try to talk anything pre 40's and about you feel like it's talking to a wall. Fans tend to talk what they've actually 'lived' or experienced first hand. I came on here talking Harry Greb and had a couple more prominent posters shut me down simply because "no films exist". What..we don't read anymore

    Exactly mate, I feel like an idiot sometimes for mentioning Willie pep (who there is video on) just because he fought pre colour.

    I'll push through.. do my next one on Adrian broner 😂 like it's a pop up book for kids.

    Tons to dig into here mate information wise and sometimes sticking to what's lived is totally understandable. I for one do not dig back into the long gone eras like I once did. Not sure why. Others though are walking encyclopedias chalked full of research and lessons to learn. Use the 'search' option here and find some old Britkid or Marbleheadmaui (same) as well as many others who put in the research threads. Iaminuit..RIP loved that stuff. Sports fans in general have a way of sectioning the eras. Football, Baseball boxing etc etc. We remember "the greats" but there's a tendency to think that everything we know right NOW is superior and would beat player-fighter a,b and c.

    lemme ask ya..what made you take interest in McCoy? Quick reads make the ol boy sound like a proper whack job with the kidnappings, fouling tactics and general illegalities. How does a man get married 10 times . Are you doing these vids as a pre piece to bigger video biographies or randomly taking a look.

    Well I want to do bigger projects like documentaries on fighters however I am assessing my audience at the moment. No point in me spending hours and hours doing research and editing for 7 views. These 2 videos I have currently took over an hour each for 2 minute videos.

    I've always known of McCoy but I was doing a list for listverse.com about boxers that went to prison ( http://www.saddoboxing.com/boxingfor...nt-prison.html )

    And that's where I learned about his past.

    I'm going to do a series about the chronology of boxing and how it got to where it is.

    Start with the history of the heavyweight division all the way to Joshua.
