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 piss 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...
