Re: McCall vs. Holmes...?
The Holmes/McCall fight was a very close fight. Larry started strong but faded down the stretch. Over the first four or five rounds, Holmes was really pumping that left jab of his; really putting alot of power behind it. When Larry started to go to the ropes, McCall was able to blast his way through and do damage. In the 9th round McCall really hurt Holmes against the ropes; he even cut Larry under the eye with one of his punches. After that point, Larry was just fighting on fumes. But I thought Holmes looked really good for a 45 year old fighter.
