Default Re: What is Holmes would have got to 50-0?

I think he would have retired straight away, and likely not lured back by the money as some have suggested...perhaps a few years off and the 2nd career as we know it, but not sure.

Holmes was always angry about not recieving the love that some of his predecessors did....so for me to do do this he might feel that he trumps both Marciano and Ali (Louis as well) by this achievment. I feel he would still be critiqued for missing a couple of key challengers, but he would have become a clear consensus #3 (He probably already is), and have plenty of supporters who would argue him @ 1 or 2 as well....But this alternate reality never came to fruition for the Easton assassin!
