Mike Quarry was born in Bakersfield, California. He began boxing at the age of 8 and obtained his license to fight as an amateur at 17. He tried to emulate his older brother Jerry Quarry, a renowned heavyweight fighter . "At one time Michael said, 'They might as well put on my epitaph: Here lies Jerry Quarry's little brother.'" He had his one chance at a title shot in 1972, when he went up against Bob Foster for the World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association light heavyweight crowns. Quarry lost on a fourth-round knockout.Mike Quarry died at age 55 in La Habra, California. His death was attributed to pugilistic dementia, which had also caused his brother Jerry's death. Mike Quarry's grave is in Shafter, California in Shafter Cemetery.
