Default Charley Burley Beat Marcel Cerdan Up & KO'd Jersey Joe Walcott In Sparring?

According to this....

Quote:
Many people in Pittsburgh felt that Bobo could give Joe Louis a good fight yet didn't think he could beat Burley in the ring. He had kayoed Elmer 'Violent' Ray and 'Jersey' Joe Walcott in sparring sessions and forced middleweight champion Marcel Cerdan out of the gym, (Charley was supposed to be Cerdan's first opponent in America!).

Edit: Or does the article mean Harry Bobo?

He didn't beat Cerdan up, Burley was supposed to be Cerdan's American Debut fight but Cerdan went to see him in the gym and he left after seeing how good he was and changed opponent too Georgie Abrams, they didn't spar I don't think.

Don't know about Walcott.
