Doesn't make much sense that one, Burley probably would have stopped him with body shots
As we're on the subject of Mr.Charley Burley, I rather like this one courtesy of Archie Moore:
When people ask me who was the best fighter I ever met I tell them Rocky Marciano because that's what they want to hear. Hell, Marciano beat me when I was 42 and I gave him a great battle. Eddie Booker and Charley Burley were the best. They beat me in my prime. Booker broke my ribs and Burley gave me a boxing lesson...Fighting Charley was almost inhuman, because he kept his punches coming at you like a riveting gun...he was a human machinegun, and nearly as dangerous.
