I saw the clips. It was a sad sight. Quarry, who had been out of the ring for nearly 10 years looked very poor. Quarry's hook was reduced to a slow slap. As bad as Quarry looked in the ring, he sounded even worse out of it.

Quarry was punch drunk and delusional after the fight. The interview was hard to watch. Quarry could not field questions. He mumbled, “ There's no quit in a Quarry “ There wasn't anything wrong with Jerry's heart in this fight. The ones who lacked heart are the promoter and the State of Colorado that let Quarry fight in order to sell some tickets.

The Story of Quarry’s comeback is sad. A con game as old as boxing itself. Some promoter told Quarry he could come back like George Foreman did. Quarry who was broke fell for the story hook, line, and sinker. Believing he could make a comeback as George Foreman had, Quarry fought in Colorado, a state where no boxing license was required. He was battered for six rounds by a club fighter who had no skill or power. Quarry's final payday for absorbing the beating was $1,050

Not enough to replace his lost bridgework.

I had read a similar story. I remember in 1991, or thereabouts when someone said that Quarry was thinking about a comeback. I was only 16 years old and saying, "why"? Jerry had taken a bad enough beating during the 70's between his tough fights and drug habits, but to think that he was conned into fighting in the 90's was just plain sad.
