Jerry Quarry

Jerry Quarry (May 15, 1945 - January 3, 1999) was called by some the best heavyweight boxer to never win a world title. He was durable and rugged and had a good punch and great chin. His one flaw was cuts, which stopped some of his fights and hurt him in others. Jerry had a good left hook and was a good body puncher and smart defensive fighter.

Quarry began his career in 1965 winning a decision against Gene Hamilton in Los Angeles, California.

Quarry died suffering of dementia. His brother, Mike Quarry[?], is a former boxer who once lost to Bob Foster by a knockout in round four for the world's Light Heavyweight title.
