When you get the article, please copy it and post it in this thread. I am very interested in knowing the details of Quarry-Middleton. My understanding is that Middleton gave Quarry a very tough fight.

1972-05-09 : [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] 203żlbs beat [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] 206Żlbs by PTS in round 10 of 10

Location: Empire Pool, Wembley, London, United Kingdom
Referee: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] 49╝-49

"Jerry Quarry, the world's No. 2 ranked heavyweight contender, narrowly outpointed Larry Middleton Tuesday night in an all American heavyweight 10 round bout. Quarry's fitness and strength carried him through in the end, but Middleton's long reach caused him a lot of trouble. In the early rounds Middleton, ranked 8th in the world, and four inches taller than Quarry at 6'4", held his opponent off with long left hands. By the middle of the fight at Wembley Pool, Quarry got his booming counter-punching going and punished Middleton severely to the body. Quarry made a desperate attempt to finish the fight in the last round, but an obviously tired Middleton held his own." -Associated Press
Retrieved from "[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]"

If those numbers are correct, Quarry won the fight with a last round rally. In England in those days only 1/4 point difference was awarded for winning a round. Thus, 49 1/4 to 49 means Quarry won 4-3-3 in rounds.

Middleton must've been a tough guy at his peak.
