Whos the worm?
The one on the left.....Willie the Worm Monroe....Most notably beat Hagler in thier first fight....To my knowledge is the only guy Hagler will admit who bested him.....said the Worm taught him a lesson....Disputes every other loss he had....Short lived and never able to land a shot before he faded, but at his best, he was smooth! The typical silky smooth philly boxer as oppossed to the sterotypical blood and guts left hookers, swarmers and brawlers.

it is not on you-tube....I was at the fight, but the story goes like this....there was a major snow storm (I remember snow, but not the degree of it?)...Due to the storm, attendance was low and I have been told (I was young at the time) that TV personell and other types had trouble arriving...I have never heard of whether the fight was recordered...but I have been searching for a copy of the fight for years...I have talked to a number of collectors, and no one I know of is aware of a copy floating around.....so what I am saying is, if you manage to unearth one, please let me know!

I asked Raging Bull a while ago....as far as ESB goes I thought he has maybe the most extensive collection....but who knows....check with him and see if he knows anything.

Louis had that super quick and deadly straight right and thats the punch to hit Holmes with. I see Holmes boxing throwing that jab while Louis sets him up for his bread and butter punch. Round 8 a lightning right over Holmes jab floors him. Louis follow up combos end the fight. Louis right was the best in boxing history and Holmes was too open for this blow.

His straight right was rated as the best by Fleischer in his book 50 years at ringside. You can't have massive holes in your defense and expect Louis not to take advantage. Louis right was trip hammer fast and he followed it with deadly 5-6 punch combinations.

Joe beats Larry, Joe will catch Larry at some point and put him down, if Larry gets up Louis will finish him unless Larry goes into run mode and even then Joe might knock him out

MY first instinct would be to pick holmes. He had the style needed to trouble louis and was better than anyone that louis fought, prime or post-prime. I could see holmes gradually wearing him down with the jab and occassional right hand.

With louis, however, you never know. He could poosible land a right that would put holmes down for the count.
