Merciless Ray Mercer vs The Easton Assassin Larry Holmes, 1992. In this fight, Larry Holmes is 42 or 43 years old, way past his prime, and prime Ray Mercer is coming off his terrifying destruction of Tommy Morrison. This is an epic performance from the old master Holmes , notice how Holmes insists on fighting in the corner with his back to the ropes, he wants it down in the trenches, he wants to show Mercer what he's made of and that he's not Tommy Morrison, and at one point, in the middle of battle, Holmes looks over to the camera man and says, "I'm not Tommy Morrison." This is one of my all-time favorite fights featuring the great Larry Holmes.
