Re: Gary Mason
Hell of a chin, didn't he end up with serious eye damage that was partially responsible for his retirement after the Lennox match? Gives you a good idea of how much heavy artillery Lennox landed on him.
That was a real war regardless, Lennox definitely wasn't as concerned about shutting down an opponents offense as he would later become. Mason hit him with some very flush shots.
He was a stablemate of Bruno's if I'm remembering correctly, and they sparred here and there. I never heard how those sessions ended though.
