Such a great era for the heavyweights.

Even contenders like Quarry, Lyle, Shavers were top class. Such a shame they couldn't have came around ten years earlier or later.

I think Jerry was a great fighter. He had a good chin, heart and was a great counter-puncher however sometimes he seemed lathergic and slow and always said he had stamina issues.

He proved his worth in this fight. And I think his destruction of a "wild swinging power house" sent a clear message to Big George. Foreman never did fight Quarry, or Shavers for that matter.

#Following the 'disaster' loss (L TKO 7) to Muhammad Ali on June 27, 1972 in Las Vegas -

Suggetions of 'retirement' were mentioned to Jerry Quarry.

At age 27, and with a record of 43-6-4 (25 KO's), and a long ring career, many did consider Jerry as
'worn out and washed up'. Still ranked at #8, Jerry was 'a name' that would look good on any contender's
list.

But 6 1/2 months later, on Friday Night - January 5, 1973 - Jerry came back to Madison Square Garden, New York to
take on a 'Fighter-on-the-Rise' - 24 year-old New Jersey Heavyweight - (#15-Ranked) - Randy Neumann 21-2-0 (6 KO's).

Not a 'big-puncher', the 6' 1" 198 lb. Randy Neumann was a light-hitting boxer who was willing to brawl if he
had to, and could go toe-to-toe with most heavyweights. Randy had 'split' two-bouts (L Dec 12 and W Dec 12)
with Chuck Wepner, and also had defeated (W Dec 10) 'cutie' Jimmy Young.

Many on the 'East-Coast' figured Jerry Quarry was 'primed' for a boxing lesson by the quick-fisted Randy Neumann.
And it looked that way, when Jerry showed up for the bout looking 'flabby and paunchy' at 209 lbs.

What was 'riding' on the fight. If Randy Neumann wins, he would be in-line for a Title Shot versus the winner of the
Joe Frazier - George Foreman Heavyweight Championship bout.

The Fight

Randy Neumann fought very well 'early' versus Jerry Quarry, scoring relatively easy with jabs and crosses. Jerry looked
slow and 'out-of-shape', as Randy controlled the pace of the fight by continually beating Jerry to the punch.

After '5-Rounds', Randy was ahead 4-1-0 on the Scorecard. Sensing he was on his way to losing, Jerry opened
up stronger in Round 6, and was able to slow Randy Neumann down with 'heavy' body shots. By the end of the
Round, Jerry was going upstairs, landing good solid shots that shook the New Jersey Heavyweight.

In Round 7, Jerry wasted no time going after Randy. First by banging away at the body, then rocking Neumann
with a big right hook, and then two left hooks which had Randy reeling. Jerry kept up the pressure, by banging
away with a 'two-fisted' barrage, that had Randy battered and bloodied at the end of Round 7.

Randy Neumann could not answer the bell for Round 8. Jerry Quarry wins by TKO 7.

The victory moved Jerry to 44-6-4 (26 KO's), and bumped him up to the #7 Heavyweight.

The 'victory' gave Jerry much needed confidence, and though he was out-boxed over the first half of the
fight, Jerry proved that he could still 'turn-it-on' when he had to.

That's all because of the politics and money.
A late 73-early 74 Foreman would have put both Quarry & Shavers out to lunch.

Correct,

Gil Clancy was never really serious about the 'December 1973' Jerry Quarry
fighting George Foreman in early-1974.

He was just looking for a 'big money' send off for Jerry.

Though perhaps it's unfair of me to assume that the "melvinfurd" account belongs to you.

Trot out the race card, eh, "squire"? Mustn't dare say anything negative about the designated politically corrected "super-heroes" like Clay-Ali, huh, "Squire"? The proles are forbidden to notice that the emporer isn't wearing any clothes, ain't that right, "squire"?

Are you denying that this particular account belongs to you? Or is it a mere coincidence that this other fellow is also wrestling fan with racist-like tendencies?



And yes,Ali is untouchable; can't say anything remotely negative about him.Pepe' can,because he's amusing.You,on the other hand,are an insufferable,grade A cunt.

You'll put me on your ignore list and go ahead and view my post anyway,simply because you can't help yourself.And even if you're capable of resisting the urge to view my post,the ignore function on this site doesn't prohibit me from posting in this thread for others to read.



The fact that you couldn't answer a basic,straight-forward question is enough for me to assume that this account does belong to you.Why you're too gutless to own up to it,however,is a mystery.There's nothing wrong with being a racist,lad.



And yes,that is my pic.Quite a dashing you chap I was in my younger days.

September 10, 1973

'Irish' Jerry Quarry vs 'Irish' Tony Doyle

Was on the undercard of the 'Muhammad Ali vs Ken Norton II' fight at 'The Forum' in California.

According to Gil Clancy, Dick Saddler agreed to fight Jerry Quarry next, if he looked good
versus 'one time fringe contender' and now a 'trial horse' - 'Irish' Tony Doyle.

Gil Clancy, was one gullible guy.

I think he's the greatest HW of all time simply because we never saw him in his prime (summer-67, summer-70)
But his 'second career' is wide open for major debate. In retrospect, he played many of us for fools.

Lets not lose focus.

The 'victory' KO 1 over Earnie Shavers in December 1973 did not get Jerry any easy ride.

In retro-spect, his career floundered after that win.

A) A failed attemot to get a Title Shot versus George Foreman for 1974.
B) A near 1st-Round Knock-out loss to 'club-fighter' Joe Alexander (May 1974)
C) A 'bad-beating' by Joe Frazier (June 1974)
D) Late-night partying (late-1974)
E) A 'dull and uninspiring' 10-Round Decision over 'journeyman' George Johnson (February 1975)
F) A 'battering' by Ken Norton (March 1975)
