Bobby Quarry was born in Lynwood, California, and is the last surviving brother of the four Quarry brothers, three of whom were noted boxers.He began boxing professionally in 1982. Bobby Quarry's biggest bout was in the early 1990s, when he faced Tommy Morrison in a Las Vegas match that was televised on ESPN. Quarry was cut on the chin and knocked out by a Morrison right hand at 1:34 of the second round, the count reaching three with Quarry on his back before referee Richard Steele called a halt to the contest. Bobby had hoped to upset Morrison, as the fight was Morrison's first comeback bout after getting knocked out by WBO heavyweight champion Ray Mercer less than four months earlier. Bobby carelessly dropped his guard, and Morrison took advantage and knocked him out with a free head In contrast to his brothers, Bobby did not enjoy much success in the ring. His career professional boxing record was a mediocre 9-12-2. He won only one of his last nine bouts, a televised victory over Dave Kilgour. The win was a poorly engineered TV mismatch with Quarry weight 222 1/2 and Kilgour 194. Kilgour would be, in fact a cruiserweight, a lower division, in modern boxing, but at the time, boxers that weighted over 190 pounds were considered Heavyweights. After consecutive knockout losses to David Dixon, Rocky Pepeli, the loss to future world champion Tommy Morrison (on ESPN in Las Vegas), and Jimmy Ellis Jr., Bobby was retired due to his deteriorating state at age 29.
