Description : He we have an authentic Larry Holmes autographed original full-size TVKO pay-per-view boxing fight poster for the Undisputed Heavyweight World Heavyweight Title Super-Fight between reigning & defending world champion Evander Holyfield & former world champion Larry Holmes held at Caesars Palace Las Vegas, 19th June 1992.

Call it winning ugly, but call it a victory for Evander Holyfield. Defending champion Holyfield outworked a cunning former champion, Larry Holmes and scored a unanimous 12-round decision to retain his undisputed heavyweight title at the outdoor ring at Caesars Palace. But it wasn't easy for Holyfield by a long chalk! The 42-year-old Holmes, who held the heavyweight title from 1978 to 1985, gained respect with his clever tactics. Spider's Web Tactic For most of the fight, Holmes positioned himself against the ropes and invited Holyfield to throw his lead lefts. Holmes sought to counter Holyfield with chopping right hands and right uppercuts.

It never happened. Holmes did his best work with that spider's web tactic early. In the second round, he landed big punches as his cornermen shouted: "Chop the tree, big Jack. Chop the tree." But big Jack, Holmes's nickname, simply didn't have the ax to swing. He did have the resourcefulness to make Holyfield look sloppy. He was able to parry many of Holyfield's punches with his gloves or lean away and take the punches, particularly Holyfield's left hook on his shoulders. He fought a measured, smart fight, but it was not enough against a champion who simply did not stop throwing punches.

Holmes did his best damage in the sixth round when he opened a cut over Holyfield's right eye. Although the cut bled from time to time during the fight, it did not appear to impede Holyfield's vision. "He proved to be a classy fighter, and he has great defense," said Holyfield. "I hit him with a lot of good body shots. I wasn't looking to take him out with one shot. He fought a smart fight. It's hard to knock out a defensive fighter."
