Re: Who has best chance of beating prime Larry Holmes
I would say the guy who beats Holmes is a guy that can dictate the tempo of the fight, Holmes liked to fight at his own pace and dictate the pace but when someone got on top of him or forced him to fight like Snipes, Shavers 2 he was not as comfortable, although he did come up with the goods in those fights when all said and done, Weaver 2 also.
I cant say enough about the heart of Larry Holmes though, if you were going to beat him you better be willing to take the title from him because he fought tooth and nail to keep hold of his title, as he showed against Williams, Weaver, Shavers, Snipes
I think he was robbed in the second Spinks fight by the way, thought he did! lose the first but not the second.
