Boxing legend Larry Holmes is definitely no fan of the current crop of heavyweights.
The iconic former world champion, who ruled the glamour division between 1978 and 1985 and fought both Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson, is now 72 years of age.
Watching on as a spectator in 2022, Holmes is not impressed.
“They throw punches like this [from their waist] for a jab, you don’t throw a punch like that, you throw straight.
“You can’t hit me with that right hand because this hand’s here to protect me.
“They don’t know how to throw a one-two, and move out to protect yourself.”
Responding to a counter-argument about Fury’s impressive movement, Holmes said: “He’s gotta move like Larry Holmes, that’s what he’s gotta move like.
“You’ve got to give punches, you shouldn’t take punches. And that’s what he does, he takes punches.
“I guess that’s what he wanted to do, prove to people that he can take a punch.
“The game of boxing is hit and don’t get hit.”
Giving his overall thoughts on the comparison of eras, Holmes concluded: “The fighters today are not the fighters that I fought.
“We fought the top ten, we didn’t duck nobody.
“Earnie Shavers, Gerry Cooney, Kenny Norton, all those strong guys.
“Today these guys don’t want to fight.
“If you want to make some money, you’ve gotta bring it to them, you’ve gotta make these guys fight.”
