On what do you base this premise?
Was Jeffries superior to Quarry in handspeed,footwork,defensive ability?
The limited footage would appear to indicate otherwise.
Jeffries was cut to pieces by a near forty years old 172lbs man who was coming out of two years retirement.
Also ,when was Jeffries hit by combinations from a real heavyweight?
Nineteen of his twenty three opponents were under 190lbs.At least eleven of them by very significant margins.
Please elaborate on his inherent advantages over Quarry.
Jeffries hit harder than Quarry based on the fact that he floored everyone in his prime, and produced far more ten counts. A few historians felt Jeffries was an all time puncher. Odd and Diamond for example. Or to use a name you might be more familiar with Tex Rickard said Jeffries hit harder then Dempsey. now do you still think Quarry hit harder
Jeffries is bigger, stronger, has more reach, and probably has the edge on every part of the tale of the tape. Is this enough advantages for you?
Quarry's weight is well within the range of Jeffries opponents, and Quarry's best weight is under 200 pounds.
Jackson was 195, Ruhlin 200 for both fights, and Munroe 215 when they fought Jeffries. Kennedy was likely over 190 as well, and Johnson was 208. I count five, not four...
As for footage I have seen Jeffries sparring with Ryan, and hitting a heavy bag, which are clips most here have not seen. If his work out clips vs Ruhlin which you have seen, you can see plenty of speed, footwork and defense.
