Default Re: 1982 Larry Holmes v.s 1993 Bowe

Bowe is one of the most overrated fighters of all time. Guy had skill and was hella fun to watch at times don't get me wrong but from a coache's perspective infuriating to watch. Got hit too much! I feel that would be his doom against a precision-based two-fisted powerhitter like Prime Mike or a jabbing expert with ring savvy for centuries in Holmes.

It would be a clinic for the most part for Holmes but Bowe would have a few moments and most likely win a few rds though not enough for it to be competitive.

Holmes would get sparked out by Rick Newman.

Holmes would beat Bowe going away. Larrys jab and right hand won't miss much. Bowe did not have the D to stop Larry from busting him up. Over 15 rounds Bowe gets stopped.

Bowe. Too much super heavyweight power- plus still relatively young (25/26 yrs old?).

hard fight to pick and I go back and forth on it. I am almost to the point here where I say I don't know, but just on how great Larry Holmes was and how Bowe didn't become great, I have to say Larry. Evander gave Bowe a loss, and I would think Larry and his right hand and jab would be able to do the same. So Holmes W12 Bowe. I would rather see the 1981 Holmes vs. Bowe..
