Default Re: Oscar Bonavena vs. Earnie Shavers

Oscar used an awkwardly effective "boxing" style against Chuvalo similar to the one Gene Fullmer used twice against Carmen Basilio. Oscar I think was aiming for a points win over Chuvalo and was at least a bit more clever against Chuvalo than was Jerry Quarry, who I think was gunning for a stoppage of some sort over George before he got careless and got hit.
