Yes, Jerry Quarry could have made $200,000 to take on Danny MAC
in Madison Square Garden,

It would have been a better bout to watch,,,,,,4-Rounds of wild-house right hands.

How much did he make for Ali II? I really find it difficult to believe that he would have made that much fighting someone who lost to a nobody earlier that year.

In 1972 for the Ali II bout, Jerry Quarry's fight purse was $150,000 plus $25,000
training expenses.

Jerry originally turned own a $100,000 offer, when he found out Ali was getting
$550,000.

To make the fight, Muhammad Ali kicked back $50,000 of his purse to Jerry, so Jerry could get $150,000.

The Danny MAC fight was originally scheduled for March, but Jerry had to postpone the bout.
Then it was re-scheduled, but Jerry took the Ali bout, as it was more publicity, plus his brother was offered
a title bout with Bob Foster too.

The one-sided outcome was largely the result of both a difference in class and a stylistic nightmare the normally counter-punching Quarry faced in Muhammad Ali.

I recall this fight,like it was yesterday. This was the one which assured me that Ali would beat Joe Frazier the next time they fought. Like most,I thought it would be a TITLE rematch. Failed to see two spanners in the works called George Foreman and Ken Norton. Still,things did turn out as thought,just under different circumstances.
