Default Re: Oscar Bonavena vs. Earnie Shavers

I'm not sure if I remember right, but wasn't this bout a possibility around 74 or so? About the timeframe of the Lyle/Bonavena fight and I'm seem to recall that it was going to be Earnie in there with the guy. Earnie's stock went up quite a bit in the late 70's, but in the early and mid 70's he wasn't perceived as all that much of a juggernaut.
