did he every fight in a championship bout? How many times? against whom? Were they close? Kingturtle 02:58 May 8, 2003 (UTC)

He lost to Jimmy Ellis for the vacant WBA's world Heavyweight title that Muhammad Ali had left vacant, and lost by a unanimous 15 round decision. While most of the public did not recognize it as a world championship bout in view that they still believed Ali to be the true champion, it was, nevertheless, still a world championship bout.

Quarry and Foreman[edit]

The two 'citation needed' marks for the section on Foreman dodging Quarry should be removed. It is very well documented that Foreman admitted to dodging him to the point where it's pretty much common knowledge. If people want to be sticklers, I know a youtube video where Foreman admits it, and I can cite that if need be. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:41, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

Split up[edit]

The article needs to be split up into different subjects with section headings. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 23:44, 18 January 2007 (UTC).

Boxing causes Parkinson's Disease?[edit]

The article says that Jerry's brother Bobby Quarry has Parkinson's Disease, possibly caused by boxing. This is impossible. Parkinson's Disease can't be caused by blows to the head. A collection of Parkinson's-like symptoms called Parkinson's Syndrome could be caused by blows to the head (at least that's what Muhammad Ali's doctors say), but not the disease itself.Spottacus 02:35, 15 August 2007 (UTC)


I did considerable editing to address this and other points raised above. Will do more later. --NameThatWorks 15:28, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Missing word?[edit]

In the first line of the 1960s section, there is a stray 'f.' Is that part of a missing word or just a typo? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:53, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Parkinson's Disease[edit]

The article states that Quarry's brother Bobby had Parkinson's Disease which "is believed" to be a result of his own boxing career. However, the medical community does not believe that boxing causes Parkinson's. Muhammed Ali having Parkinson's is just coincidence, most likely not caused by his boxing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:57, 15 August 2010 (UTC)


Article is in serious need of a clean-up to remove the original research and weasel/pea words. Sources would also be great. Mabuska (talk) 19:12, 12 August 2012 (UTC)
