    Chris McDonald

    Was this ex-Tomorrow's Champ any good at the amateur level?

    I recal reading Manny Steward stating that McDonald was the hardest natural puncher he ever worked with.

    I found that very interesting, even though I never truly bought it.

    I saw Chris win the 1980 NE GG Title. He was a good puncher. I thought he would go further than he did in the pros.

    In my opinion, he beat Broad in the Trials finals. But my opinion didn't count any more then than it does now.
    His pro loss to Smith was also a questionable one, and that took the steam out of his career. I think he had less painful ways of making a living and decided to pursue them. He reminded me a hell of a lot of Jerry Quarry (with maybe a bit more one-punch power). PeteLeo.
