More:



The most racially charged fight in history sees WBC Heavyweight Champion Larry Holmes defend his title against "The Great White Hope" Gerry Cooney in a highly anticipated affair. Feeling slighted by the marketing campaign and the fact that the ring announcer introduces him before his challenger, Holmes drops Cooney in the second round. Cooney survives the early knockdown and makes a fight of it but loses two points in the ninth round and another one in the eleventh for low blows. Holmes staggers a bloodied Cooney in the thirteenth round, prompting the challenger to grab the ropes for support, which Referee Mills Lane rules a knockdown. Though Cooney wants to continue, his corner throws in the towel to save him from further punishment.

And actual decent Holmes fight.

rorschach's picture

You don't see those everyday lol.

Holmes would beat Cooney 100 out of 100 times.

Larry Holmes as Great as he is still underrated.

The middle rounds were competitive and could have gone either way in my opinion.

Also, there is some confusion over round 9. Sugar Ray initially said Cooney had two points taken away for a low blow, but then at the beginning of the 10th he said Cooney was only docked one point.

I scored it 10-8 instead of 10-7 as most people have it. Mills Lane didn't make it clear when he was deducting points.

Miles Lane deducted two points in rd 9, and one point rd 11 from Cooney for low blows...total of 3 points were officially deducted

Didn't think you could dock 3.
