Uppercut" is a term used in boxing. In the 1930/40s the young Willy O'Shea earned the nickname "Uppercut O'Shea, " as he toured through Australia boxing week after week for nearly a decade. Just 15 years old, he came in 1930 from Ireland to Sydney, Australia. Despite the tough times and the hard sport Willy O'Shea always made an effort to look sharp and always had a clean tie in his bag as well as a tub of home-made hair grease. Willy's legacy lives on through the Uppercut pomade, an Australian family owned company which has set itself the goal to make you look as well groomed as it was Willy back in the 1930's.
