Mike Lucie

BORN Fought out of Troy, New York
WEIGHT 145-156 lbs

Lucie was a strapping fellow who was muscular, willing, clever, and game but apt to lose his wits at a critical moment; He was a fast and furious fighter who was similar in style to George LaBlanche and among the best middleweights in the world in the 1880s

During his career, he battled such men as Fred Woods, Jack Lynch, Bill Gabig, Mike Boden, Patrick "Reddy" Gallagher, George LaBlanche, and "Brooklyn" Jimmy Carroll
