Nice list, Ted.
Not sure I would agree, but I think one could at least make the argument that Holmes avoided rematches w/ Mike Weaver and Tim Witherspoon and that he avoided Michael Dokes, Greg Page and Pinklon Thomas altogether.
But no way did he avoid Gerrie Coetzee. The only time I can recall Holmes yelling for a unification match, in fact, was during that brief period of time when Coetzee had the WBA title. Once he lost it to Page, Holmes stopped yelling. [Seriously, can anyone imagine Gerrie Coetzee upsetting Larry Holmes?? Not me, I can tell you that.]
