    80s go 7-1, with McCrory losing to Quartey.

    There's a bunch of 80s WWs that aren't mentioned which I'd pick over Quartey.

    Almost a clean sweep by the 80's
    The only exception was Quartey vs Mccory .
    Quartey would ko Mccory.
    Also very possible Mayorga could out work Starling
    whom could be very lackadaisical in the ring,
