People often mock him for his weight and what not, but the man is in much better shape than what he looks. I've seen Deontay Wilder and Chazz Witherspoon work out in person, and at 60 years old Larry was hitting the heavybag harder than either of those two did when I saw them. His punches obviously weren't as quick as they were 30 years prior and didn't have the snap they used to, but I can assure you, Holmes was and still is a hard puncher.

This year Larry restarted his "Run with the Champ" charity 5 K race, and Larry was a participant.
