To be fair to Holmes he made that comment just after he had lost to Spinks ,and was seriously ****ed off,plus its often taken out of context,what he actually said was"if you want to get technical about it Rocky couldnt carry my jock strap",which comparing them technically isnt so far from the truth,,he shouldnt have said it but its not like he said" I would have killed Rocky "is it?
