I find it funny that because his chin wilted under the bombs of two of the hardest hitting heavyweights of all time that it's **** poor, when Ali could never even get him off his feet.
The only reason we've even heard of Jose Garcia is because he knocked out Norton; not because he was a big player in the division. Norton made him by losing to him, not the other way around.

Quarry was never really a big puncher and one fight away from retirement, and it showed.... If you need guys like Kirkman to show he can beat a puncher, well i guess that says enough...
