    Default Am Rec and 'Facts' on Gerald McClellan

    All this S*** taken from another forum:

    1979 and 1981 Pennsylvania Jr Olympic Champion @ 125 (beating Michael Moorer)

    1982 Wisconsin Jr Olympic Champion @ 147

    1984 Wisconsin Golden Gloves Champion @ 156

    1984 Third Place, National Junior's @ 156

    1985 Third Place, National's @ 156

    1986 Third Place, National's @ 156

    1987 National Champion @ 156

    1988 Second Place, National Golden Gloves @ 156 (beating Roy Jones Jr.)

    Never known as a knockout puncher in the amateur ranks

    Youngest member of a semi-pro basketball team when he was just 15 but found he wasn't much of a team player

    Chief sparring partner for middleweight contender 'Dangerous' Donald Lee from 1984 to 1988

    Didn't drink, smoke or do drugs

    Prayed to God every day

    Father was alcoholic and regularly lashed out at him as a kid

    Brother Todd was said to be an even better prospect but didn't have Gerald's dedication

    Sisters ignored Gerald as a kid and adored Todd

    Felt his mother loved Todd more than him

    Slept around a lot because he seeked attention and affection

    Listed Don King as his idol

    Received only a measly $250,000 from the Benn fight, compared to Benn's $1,700,000

    and this (copied and pasted from some other guy): BELOW JOHN SCULLY DESCRIBING RJJ V GMAN AS ONE OF BEST AM FIGHTS SEEN (1987 GOLDEN GLOVES CHAMP RJJ V 1987 NATIONALS CHAMP GMAN)......AFTER BEATING ROY IN THE SEMI'S, GERALDS CORNER PULLED HIM OUT OF THE 88 GG FINAL AGAINST RAY MCELROY BECAUSE HIS JAW WAS IN AGONY-IT COST GERALD A PLACE ON THE OLYMPIC TEAM AND MEANT HE HAD TO KNOCK EVERYONE OUT QUICK IN THE PROS TO GET SOME ATTENTION AFTER ROY GOT THE ALL THE ATTENTION FROM THE OLYMPICS AND GERALD TURNED PRO UNKNOWN (DESPITE BEATING ROY FAIR AND SQUARE)......


    Later on in 1988, at the National Golden Gloves, Roy won his first three matches. The first one was a decision over Thomas Tate. He also scored a 3rd. round stoppage over defending National 165 pound Champion and Future NABF Champion Fabian Williams. Those victories set up a fight that someone should have taped for obvious reasons. The semifinal match was Roy Jones taking on Gerald McClellan. You would expect this fight to be very exciting. It was more than that. It was a WAR. One of the greatest examples of speed and power that I have seen in an amateur Boxing match. I remember that Roy was forced back to the ropes often in the fight but that what made the fight so thrilling was the way Roy would FURIOUSLY fight off the ropes with flurries. It was like watching two Olympic athletes fight for the Gold Medal or two guys going for the world professional championship.

    Omaha World-Herald: "Two 1987 Champs, 156 pounder Roy L. Jones of Knoxville and 132 pound Donald Stokes of Louisiana, were eliminated last night.

    Gerald McClellan of Milwaukee crowded Jones most of the first two rounds in pounding out a decision triumph. The 156 pound McClellan was there to slug with Jones from the opening bell, and carried the first round. Jones spent a lot of that time along the ropes.

    Jones showed some movement in a fairly close second and then scored well in the early part of the third. McClellan was stronger at the finish when he again pounded Jones along the ropes and in a corner."


    I saw Gerald a month later at Sugar Ray's training Camp in Maryland and he told me he wouldn't be able to spar for a while longer because his jaw was still hurting from the fight with Roy.

    Probably about 10 or less losses and 50-100 wins, but who knows?
