WEIGHT 145-163 1/2 lbs
MANAGER. T. Brennan, Jack Daugherty, Dan Morgan, A.I. Rudolph, Leo P. Flynn

McCoy was a light-hitting left-hander who fought in many "No Decision" bouts; Consequently, he was not a popular fighter; He won the Middleweight Championship in a surprise one-round knockout of tough George Chip

During his career, he defeated such men as George Chip, Willie Lewis and Eddie Hanlon in bouts with "official" verdicts and "bested" many others in "No Decision" contests

McCoy was inducted into the International Jewish Sports Hall of Fame in 1989
