Default Re: Sean O' Grady Discussion

D9,

I, personally, always thought Sean was a pretty decent fighter.

Few rememeber, that he was originally being groomed for a bout with Alfonso Zamora,
for mid-December 1975

Papa O'Grady had $60,000 waiting for Alfonso Zamora to come to Oklahoma City
to defend his WBA Bantamweight Championship, and on ABC-TV.

The 5' 8" 118 lb. Sean was ranked as the #9 WBA Bantamweight, despite only being
a 16 1/2 year-old with no 'credible wins' while compiling a 26-0-0 (22 KO's) record.

Even if Sean, in all likelihood would have been blasted out by the 'Z-Man', it
wouldn't have been the worst thing in the world to lose to Zamora at 16 1/2
years-old.
