Larry Holmes

Larry Holmes, age 61, started off his professional career with a bang in 1973, winning his first 48 matches. He held the WBC heavyweight champion title from 1978 to 1983, the ring heavyweight title from 1980 to 1985 and the IBF heavyweight title from 1983 to 1985. His last fight, at age 51 back in 2002, was a win against American boxer Eric Esch. His career record stands at 69 wins (44 by knockout) and six losses.
