Andy Bowen was a short, stocky fighter who was scrappy and tough. He could dish it out and take it too. He was strong and relied upon his natural stamina and durability rather than finesse and boxing skills. Bowen was known for his "marathon" fights of long duration. During his career, Bowen defeated men such as Louis Bezenah, Billy Myer, and Jack Everhardt.

Bowen died in 1894 of injuries sustained during a bout with George "Kid" Lavigne at New Orleans, LA, USA.
