LARRY HOLMES ON KEN NORTON Y MAS!
San Francisco, CA- Former linear World heavyweight champion Larry Holmes was our featured guest in the “boxing hour” on the live Sunday at 11 AM PT show. This is the delayed version you can listen to by hitting the black arrow in the silver box above or hitting the Sunday, September 22, 2013 Podcast links above.
19 DEFENSES OF LINEAR TITLE
Larry, well he Is Larry Holmes, honest and as one can be and yet dropping hints here and there that the astute listener might be able to pick up on. We spent time on the recently passed Ken Norton, with whom Holmes engaged in a heavyweight fight for the ages, winning the WBC title from Norton in 15 rounds, some hellish, and beginning a title run that would last until 1985. Unlike other guests with whom you have to tip toe around, Holmes applauds Ali and Norton, not sugar coated either, but honest.
“RING TALK” & 29 YEARS OF RADIO PRESENCE
We air live Saturday and Sunday’s at 11 AM PT on the Sports Byline Broadcast Network, American Forces Network & the I Heart Radio Network.
