Default Re: 2006-Larry Holmes in Brawl with MMA Fighter?

I always felt for Holmes... Coming on the heels of Ali, and then beating ali in the ring, he never got proper respect and the love that comes wtih the respect. He handled the whole Ali fight with class, before during and after. He measuredly took Ali down, and let up on the gas a bit when he saw he had nothing late in the fight. Even looking at the ref to stop it. He certainly is a bad dude in the street and when talking all time great heavies, he`s damn near the top of the list. Prime Holmes is a problem for ANY of the all time greats...As time has gone on, he has mellowed and people have finally given him his just due as a great champion. He came out to the Marciano statue unveling and was great with all the people here...
