Vic Foley
Vancouver BC, 1920s -30s.
W 67 (14 ko's) | L 19 | D 29 | Total 115

I looked into this fighter's career for an older friend who was his nephew, the first thing that amazed me was the amount of DRAWS...which given Foley's status and linage, continual Top 10 rating, his battles with Canzoneri and his world title bout against Todd Morgan, I thought safe to say a good few of these bouts may well have been Vic's (?).

Seemingly he couldn't secure a bout with that other Canadian West coast hero; the up-coming Jimmy McClarnin, whose niece Catherine I also got to know. Good boxing connections in that little Okanagan Valley town of Vernon BC, apparently Yvon Durelle's brother lives there too.

For what it is worth, here goes.

In the old days, even before my time which is some 70 years ago, draw verdicts were declared by a very simple gesture. At the end of the fight, with no judges to consult, the referee in charge would simply throw his hands up in the air, both simultaneously, and flick his fingers skyward. That meant it was all even, the decision was a draw, case closed.

During the Four-Round Era in California, the term "upsticks" was
used in reference to draws in at least one newspaper report that
I have read.
