Default Jerry Quarry vs. Ernie Shavers, 1973

Before this fight Shavers was 33-0 with 32 KO's! Ultimately he had 69 KO's out of 75 wins. He was also bigger than Quarry. Was Quarry intimidated? Ha!

KO round one!

Jerry Quarry could fight. Quick hands, a good solid body puncher. That hook to the body was his bread and butter. He was tough as hell sometimes too tough for his own good.

Quarry was always willing to rumble with the best. He couldve probably avoided some fighters but he took the tough road.

This was the fight that supposedly was to give Jerry a shot at Foreman in September if he won.

However, Foreman "admittedly" sidestepped Jerry to fight Ali instead.

They made Jerry fight Frazier instead (whom Jerry could never had beaten due to styles).

Gil Clancy was talking about that very thing, Foreman, here in the post fight interview.

Some of the greats of boxing in there including Howard Cosell and Don Dunphy. Wasn't it nice how the announcers used to just talk about what was going on in the ring back then instead of rambling on with their idiotic personal opinions?

Savage beating. I think Quarry would have beaten him every time due to the better chin.

Professional num-skulls are basically the announcers of today.

That is a young Don King leaving the ring at the first of round one.

Oops, I missed the second page - but Shavers had won 34 fights in a row prior to meeting Quarry, including KO wins over top guys like Jimmy Ellis and Jimmy Young, and won 33 of them by KO! He did lose to Ron Stander 3 1/2 years before, and before the Stander fight he had won another ten in a row, all by KO. he weighed 210, Quarry 202.

Damn. If Ron Stander beat Shavers what chance would Ernie have had against Smoking Joe?

Jerry Quarry was as game as they come. Good set of mitts too when he was in the mood as we can see. Shavers ate some serious leather there. He must be turning in his grave when he sees some of the guys winning these alphabet titles

Here is quite a story on Ron Stander today, the man who upset Shavers in 1970, and it shows what a dirty business boxing really is. He's living from hand to mouth, trying to scrounge up a buck or two to supplement his social security. Boxing has no pension plan, no nothing - except for the Don Kings and all the other boxing mobsters, and the very few top guys. Everybody else is on their own and nobody cares.

I think Shavers would have been a very dangerous man for Frazier to fight. Styles. Still, Frazier would be the favorite, but not by much in my book.

Sweet mother of Pearl S. Buy a new book or get one on loan at the local library, Shake. This book you've got now must be The Secret, if it's misled you to that degree.

This one doesn't even need pugilistic triangle theory to muck up the obvious conclusion, laddie.
