Mike McTigue, who was also known by the fighting alias of "Methuselah," and who was the brother of fellow boxer Jim McTigue, won the World Light-heavyweight Title on March 17, 1923, (St. Patrick's Day), by defeating Battling Siki in Dublin, Ireland. He would defend his title against future Hall of Famers Tommy Loughran, Young Stribling and Mickey Walker, before losing the title by unanimous decision to the Olympic Gold Medalist wrestler-turned-boxer Paul Berlenbach in 1925. He married a Montreal girl and called that city his home.
