Both these guys tend to be overrated at times. But Williams simply never achieved what Quarry did in the division. I take much more credence in results than delirious descriptors.
Only Liston, Machen and Terrell would fight him it seems. He lost a brawl to Liston, drew with Machen and went 1-1 with Terrell perhaps deserving 2-0

Some fighters don't get the chance to prove themselves and you have to judge them with your own eyes

Beating Terrell is as good as beating the men Quarry beat

He was also still a 20yo, Quarry was 21 against a past prime Machen
