I hope that article helps out a little bit.
I can also point you to a boxing site that just might be able to provide Jeff with what he's looking for. A lot of these guys who post on the following site have been boxing fans from even before Jeff's time and would no doubt have some memories to share...if not some actual articles that were written about Jeff during his boxing career (a couple guys have helped me with copied articles and such, and I'm only a fan);
If you just explain the situation to the guys over there I can almost guarantee they will help you and Jeff with whatever they have and be more than happy to do so!
I also personally know of somebody who has video of what could've been Jeff's career best victory, and that was the 1st round KO of the former WBA champion, Ernie Terrell. If that's also something Jeff is looking for, hey I'll be glad to get a copy of it for him, without a doubt.
Great info Yogi, I only knew of him because of the Shavers incident and I had heard he could punch.
