Did Jeff fight in Texas way back? I know a guy who was set to fight him then but there was a weight and time issue. Just curious.

Understood. Did they have another brother? I briefly knew a guy who had some pretty verifiable stories from way back, and when I mentioned Evan as my favorite fighter he had a tale about almost fighting his brother (?) in Texas, but it was cancelled due to a lack of time to make weight. Hate to think I was yanked around, given he really did seem to know so much from that era. Thanks either way.
