It was decided that he should fight...Livingstone Bramble, I think, and Carr was knocked down twice and got a gift decision, but it was only his 16th fight.
You might also look into Alex Garcia. He fought on ESPN a lot, but he was also a regular main-eventer on USA. His KO of Bernard Benton is a brutal exhibition. He started late, learning to box while in prison for 2nd degree murder, and, ultimately, his inability to take a punch let him down. He turned down $500k to fight George Foreman, saying he wasn't ready, then got kod by Mike Dixon (on USA) for much, much less.


I was at the Palace watching the Oba Carr/ Livingstone Bramble fight. I thought that Carr got a gift that night. I had a bout against Oba in the amatuers. I do remember Rock Newman pulling some heavyweight over the top rope and out of the ring during a brawl. Usa fights were a regular part of my youth.

Joseph Kwuinaka was on there, he one one nice guy and a heck of a tough fighter. I honestly don't remember very many bouts that I watched although I watched just about every week.
