Although somewhat confused by McCoy’s awkward style, Clabby (154¾) was far too skilful for the New Yorker when winning virtually every round, his educated left hand landing almost at will. With McCoy (157¾) looking mainly to survive, while the contest showed up Clabby’s lack of power it also highlighted the fact that as soon as the former took on a reasonable opponent in a decision contest he would almost certainly lose his title claim.
