KID M'COY, INVENTOR OF NEWEST KNOCKOUT.
Norman Selby, whoso fighting name is Kid McCoy, is an American lad, born Twenty six years ago in Rush County, Indiana. He comes of Kentucky stock, his ancestors having lived for generations in the Blue Grass country. Selby is the newest development in the art of pugilism. He knocked Peter Maher out with a little left-hand punch on the side of the chin. The blow travelled not much more than six inches. Selby invented the blow. He calls it the corkscrew punch. He delivers it with either hand, feinting: apparently at random until he has moved the fist up within six inches of its target, then cracking it in with a twist as if he wore turning a corkscrew. The blow starts from the elbow only, and is not followed by the weight of the body. Selby can throw it in equally well whether coming in or running away.

Oh so thats where Eddie McGoorty got his famous corkscrew left hook from..... unlike McCoy, Eddie just used that punch with just his left but he was very effective with it, knocking many out with it.
