Yeah. Frazier's left hook and pressure would give Holmes more hell.

Thanks. I can't find it to save my life. Making things worse is that the 'search' option on this site isn't as simple as it used to be.

Larry Holmes would give Smokin Joe fits.
Joe might score a knock-down or '2', but Larry's mid and late round movement
would give him more than enough make-up ground to score a close, but unanimous
decision.

This ain't Buster Mathis or Jimmy Ellis here.

Agreed. He also got up *immediately, I might add* from arguably the hardest punch ever landed... picked up his lunch pail and got back to work...winning a wide decision. Larry Holmes is an absolute monster h2h.

Good job,,,,,

If 'The Easton Assassin' gets by 3-Rounds with 'Big George' it would be all
over, by a KO in 7.

Thats the 1973 thru 1977 George.

he was joking about foreman,he said that george was a brute with no skill, he said that he would beat tyson, prime vs prme.he said that himself was the greatest. i would love to see a prime frazier destroying his ass.
lol prime frazier would not destroy larry holmes son like him or not larrys the most underated heavyweight , probably ever and joe frazier would be stopped by larry holmes the same way he stopped Leon Spinks Ernie Shavers

With Joes wide open style, it is just possible that Larry lowers the BOOM, sometime
after Round 10.
