In 1928 John Daley had quite a year He won the Massachusetts, New England and National AAU titles and went to the finals of the Olympic bantamweight championship. In the semifinals it appeared Daley was finished as the referee gave the fight to his opponent, Harry Isaacs, of South Africa. But the crowd raised such a ruckus over this decision that it was reversed and Daley was advanced to the finals. The same thing happened in the finals but this time Daley’s victory was reversed and given to the Italian, Vittorio Tamagnini. After the Olympics, Daley turned pro but fought only four times. He quit boxing when he realized it was less than financially rewarding. Daley took a job as a stock and bond broker and was very successful.
