From 1978 to 1981 mike weaver fought prime versions of John Tate, Bernardo Mercado, Gerrie Coetzee, James Tillis and Larry Holmes... He beat the first four while giving the last one fits... His next defeat came at the hands of a peaking Michael Dokes and that was a controversial stoppage which came after Weaver had been out of the ring for fourtneen months. They fought to a draw in the rematch in a bout that many felt Hercules won.. Years later while being well past his best, Weaver sparked a prime Williams and also chalked up win over the undefeated Pritchard and the dangerous Duplooy.. I disagree with your statement about him not fairing well against top opposition... That said, I wouldn't favor him to beat Quarry. But weaver losing is hardly a forgone conclusion and in either case I think it would be a competitive fight.
