    Some people have said that you cant hardly tell that's Larry Holmes in the newspaper photo.
    But if you look at it long enough you can tell it is Larry Holmes,especially by he shape of his arms.
    That was he only photo that I could find of it(on he free newspaper archives anyway)
    it may be better reproduced in one of the pay-per-view newspaper articles,but Im not going o pay any newspaper to see a 40 year old article.
