    One thought on “Larry Holmes: Against the Odds”

    1. Great stuff about dealing with Don King, being in Ali's camp when he was coming up and his life and boxing career. Holmes has always been an honest guy that speaks his mind which made this one of the better boxing biographies I have read.

    2. Someone to be truly admired. Even though he didn't have the education and was not always supported by the boxing community, Larry Holmes has turned into a successful businessman. The trials and tribulations that he faced and have overcome were phenomenal
