But he wasn't that accomplished. I've heard all the anecdotal support for Williams but outside of Terrell, he just didn't beat an elite heavy, let alone stop one. Even "names" like Bethea and Miteff were on fumes by the time he got to them.

Quarry at least proved his mettle against Foster, Patterson, Lyle, Shavers and Mathis. Even his second tier of victories over guys like Neumann and Spencer are more impressive than almost all of Williams' victories. Quarry is just more proven... and it's not even close.
