The high point of his career occurred on June 30, 1964, when he won the Canadian super featherweight championship from Jackie "Kid" Carter in a 12-round bout. Daye defeated Carter at the Halifax Forum in front of 5,000 fans. He held the title for the next 18 months.

Daye went on to become the first African Nova Scotian Sergeant-at-Arms for the Nova Scotia House of Assembly.
