Re: Jeffries v Quarry
Footage of Jeffries
I read an article covering Eddie Machen back in the early sixties. It was mentioned that Machen carefully studied film of past fighters in passing. The author asked Machen to rate the old champs and he gave this rating
Machen remarked about Jeffries that he liked "his quick hands and combinations"
I am pretty certain I am remembering that correctly.
I have wondered myself what film convinced Machen of this. But there is a point in the Johnson fight in which Jeffries flurries with both hands and for a big fellow he threw a lot of leather quickly.
