Hugh "Hughey" Murphy

BORN May 30 1880
DIED October 12 1952; Santa Cruz, California
WEIGHT 115-125 lbs

Murphy was a capable fighter who had an up-down career; During his career, he gained wins over such men as Austin Rice and Billy Maynard and "bested" a number of men in "no decision" bouts; Perhaps, two of his best performances came against Abe "Kid" Goodman in 1903
