More:



When Leon Spinks decides to grant a rematch to Muhammad Ali rather than face mandatory contender Ken Norton, the WBC strips him of the title and grants it to Norton. For his first assignment as WBC titlist, Norton is tasked with facing the undefeated Larry Holmes. In one of the greatest heavyweight fights in history, Holmes wins the title by outlasting the older Norton in a titanic struggle.

Comments

I put this fight above Bowe-Holyfield

A classic match. I am not sure how many score the 15th round for Holmes. Norton won the 15th and did well. This fight was either a draw or Norton by a decision. Larry built up an early lead but Norton came on midway and closed the 15h and final round.

What a great fight this was!

TheUndefeated's picture

Great fight! Norton's heart was off the charts, but unfortunately for him, Holmes' skills were too. Hadn't seen too much younger Holmes fights when I saw this one and was struck by how closely he patterned his style to Ali's. I don't like scoring rounds even but frustratingly, I could not decide on three rounds on this fight after multiple viewings. Lean those toward Norton and I can see why many feel this was a draw or a Norton win. Holmes made a statement though in the 13th. An all-time classic!
