• Jim Jeffries was big, strong, and fast.

  • He hit hard and had great stamina.

  • He fought from a crouch and sprang forward with dangerous punches.

  • He was rugged and almost impossible to hurt.

  • In his prime, he may have been the best heavyweight ever.

You don't tug on superman's cape.
You don't spit into the wind.
You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger
and you don't mess around with Jim!
--Jim Croce, singer
