Re: What is the consensus on Tim Witherspoon vs Larry Holmes?
Larry did a lot of ineffectie punching. I felt Witherspoon outlanded him, and I sincerely believe that had compubox been a factor, it would show Witherspoon had a sizeable edge. That right hand guard had Larry confused all night, he couldn't land the counter-counter-uppercut and kept throwing one-two's that failed to get through.
Clean effective punching is what made me give it to Witherspoon. I'm a big Holmes fan, and had never seen a 'Spoon fight, so I was pleasantly surprised.
