Famous Fights Holmes vs Cooney TITLE Legacy Tee
In what was the highest grossing fight in history, Larry Holmes and Gerry Cooney met at Caesar’s Palace on June 11, 1982 to put their undefeated records on the line. The massive build up and promotional hype surrounding this 80’s mega-fight lived up to many of the expectations as Holmes forced his will and ring generalship on the younger, less experienced challenger. Although both fighters had their moments, it was Holmes who took control of the action as the fight wore on, using his superior boxing ability to keep Cooney from landing his trademark, fight-ending left hook . “The Easton Assassin” was able to end the fight when Cooney’s corner threw the towel in at the 2:52 mark of the thirteenth round. 60% combed ring-spun cotton, 40% polyester.
