Seventeen years ago today, on January 3rd, 1999 we lost former Heavyweight contender Jerry Quarry at the age of 53.
Quarry retired with a career mark of (53-9-4) and on this day many re-call his fights with the likes of Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, Ken Norton and Floyd Patterson among others.
Here at the Boxing Channel, we reached deep into our vaults to find this rare, exclusive video of Quarry singing the National Anthem at the Great Western Forum in Los Angeles, California on June 17th, 1986.
Please enjoy this piece, narrated by TBC's Al Bernstein as we remember Jerry Quarry.
Gone, but not forgotten.
