I was maybe 5 or 6 years old at the time, but I know Carl “The Truth” Williams vs. Larry Holmes was the first boxing match I ever saw. I remember it so vividly, because even Toddler Rob was scoring fights and I thought he won. When I got older, I watched the fight again and still thought he won. He has passed away from complications from throat cancer. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
