...on the proviso he met Page afterwards. They announced a week before the Frazier fight that he merely had to 'sign' to fight Page, has this sunk in 'Goldfish'? To sign. Not fight the week after. SIGN SIGN ****ING SIGN.

You just believe what Larry says, how about reading up on other sources, goldfish.


No, thats when Larry knew he could make just as much money on his own. And also, wouldn't you say Larry knows better than anyone else about his troubles with King?

i wouldn't say cooney, smith, witherspoon, norton, shavers, leon spinks, berbick Renaldo Snipes and a few others I forget were bums. those guys would have reigned supreme in todays HWD

Holmes proved himself to be great on the road to winning the title by beating the likes of roy williams, earnie shavers, norton with 1 arm. cooney is now as underated as he was overated before he lost to spinks and holmes

Gerry was good and very dangerous when he fought holmes. he just wasn't at holmes level of greatness

What about a 40 plus year old holmes pushing evander holyfield and oliver mcall mccall close. what about the win over mercer. he was a quality fighter as holyfield and lewis will attest

He was a quality fighter; I totally agree with you. But he was also a fighter who, for the last few years of his title reign, avoided the better fighters in favor of the easier marks.

which heavyweight champion ever chose the hard route. Ali never fought the best contendors during his final years. holmes and foreman were left out of the picture.

don't get me wrong shavers, lyle, norton (who beat ali 3rd time no doubt) and a few other were very worthy. there was better around

Holmes resume on the way to the title was better most other hw champions
