Jerry Quarry, Joe Frazier & James J. Woody
March 4, 1966
They all appeared on the same card at Madison Square Garden.
After their performances, the general analysis from the boxing pundits,
Jerry Quarry is the best of the trio, followed by James J. Woody, and
Joe Frazier (1964 Olympic Gold Medal Champion) was rated 3rd.
James J. Woody
26 year-old, Bronx, New York Southpaw Heavyweight. (Good boxer, limited power)
6' 0", 198 lbs.
9-0-0 (1 KO)
28 year-old, New York Heavyweight (Good power, dangerous overhand right)
6' 0" 187 lbs.
6-3-0 (3 KO's)
1963 Pan Am Games Heavyweight Champion
1961 Inter-City Golden Gloves Champion
Lee Carr drops James Woody in the 1st round, with an overhand right.
Carr stuns Woody in the 2nd round and again in the 3rd round, with roundhouse rights.
But Woody regroups in the 4th round, and figures out how to avoid Carr's heavy right hands.
James J. Woody uses his right jab, and quick straight left hand leads, to box beautifully in rounds 4 and 5.
In the 6th round, Woody times one of Carr's roundhouse swings, and drops him with a perfect
right hand counter.
In the 7th and 8th rounds, Woody shows very good skills in landing straight 1-2's, and sweeps both rounds.
22 year-old, Philadelphia Heavyweight (Powerful, but raw)
5' 11 1/2", 199 lbs.
5-0-0 (5 KO's)
1964 U.S. Olympic Gold Medal Winner (Heavyweight)
Dick 'The Tiger' Wipperman
24 year-old, Buffalo, New York Heavyweight (Club-Fighter, with good boxing skills)
6' 1', 209 lbs.
30-5-1 (14 KO's)
1961 Western New York Golden Gloves Champion (Heavyweight)
Pretty much Joe Frazier mauling an unwilling opponent.
Dick Wipperman was a 'Reluctant Tiger', who pawed ineffectually and sidle unhappily along the ropes
as if he were seeking sanctuary.
Joe Frazier was unable to demonstate many of his skills, but he did show fast hands and a good deal of
resourcefulness against a thouroughly unorthodox opponent.
The fight was stopped at 2:58 of the 5th round, not because a great deal of damage done to Wipperman,
but more of Wipperman's non-effort to go through the motions of a prize-fighter.
The Olympic Champion was arm-weary during the 5th round, which may indicate a stamina problem.
