Eddie Machen was lucky to get a draw with Cleveland Williams. He was shocked at Williams speed combined with his power. Machen went on to make Jerry look like an amateur 4 years later.
Big Cat was 31-1 when he was dropped 2X and KO'd by 174lb Bob Satterfield, in all fairness Quarry was 17-0-3 when he lost to Machen and the Judges had it 4-5, 5-6 and 2-7 ......not too bad for a youngster
