If this is for me. I'm not missing anything, I accept that Jeffries was a solid puncher, my contention is that he was not a super heavy puncher as you say Fitz undoubtedly was.
Jeffries wore his opponents down before despatching them and , for the most part he greatly outsized them.
I find it quite possible that Quarry hit as hard as Jeffries ,and he had the added disadvantage of wearing bigger gloves, and hitting on men who were not only real heavyweights but were not coming out of extended retirement.
I haven't even made a pick here .
A question for you
Which top heavyweight in his prime did Jeffries knock unconscious ?
In other words when did Jeffries ever do this?
