Default Re: Larry Holmes...Some of the fastest pair of hands for a big man?

Also if Holmes is considered a big heavyweight does that mean people like Tony Tubbs and Herbie Hide are in consideration, being around that 6'3 region (even though that's the slightest bit above average for a heavyweight since the 70s)

Last time I checked Ali was bigger than Holmes and he is leagues quicker tha Holmes. James Toney has much faster hands even when weighing 250 pounds ish. The term 'big' heavyweight isn't broad enough for a definitive answer to this thread.

Yes Larry had quick hands, but I've given you two examples in a matter of seconds of 'big' heavyweights that are a lot faster than Larry. Get a grip people and form your own opinions
No heavyweights were "a lot faster" than Larry.

Even in his 40s Larry was quicker than most.

A fat Toney definitly had really fast hands in his early HW career. Look at his fights versus Holyfield or even Peter.
