    I was alluding to Dylan Thomas, my friend.

    Weaver would get rocked hard a few times, and it would be an excellent fight to watch, but would ultimately stop Quarry via 13th round TKO.

    Mike had Tyson-level power (not his hand speed), his main problem seemed to be his lack of attention. At times he seemed like he was sleepwalking through fights (watch most of Tate and Tillis for this odd proclivity). When someone was really on him he started trying hard to land...and could be mightily devastating.

    The Weaver who demo'd Coetzee would eventually land a right or left flush on Jerry and knock him silly enough for the ref to stop it shortly after.
