"Underdog Jerry Quarry dropped Buster Mathis in the 2nd round and then went on to pound out a lopsided victory over the giant from Grand Rapids, Mich. in a 12 round heavyweight fight at MSG Monday night. Quarry, 196, went right after his 234 1/2 pound foe and smashed him repeatedly to the body and head. Quarry showed complete contempt for Mathis' punching power. He walked right in and dug searing hooks and solid rights to Buster's belly and ribs, although it was a long right to the jaw that dropped Buster in the 2nd round." -Associated Press
