Description : Here we have an original official onsite poster for the IBF heavyweight & lineal world titles. Riviera Hotel & Casino, Outdoor Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. 21st September 1985.

Reigning & defending champion Larry Holmes lost the IBF title by a close contentious 15 round unanimous decision to Michael Spinks, who became the first reigning World Light Heavyweight Champion to win the World Heavyweight Championship. Holmes entered the fight with a 48-0 record, needing just one win to tie Rocky Marciano's all-time undefeated heavyweight record of 49-0. After the fight, Holmes said, "I'm 35 fighting young men and Rocky was 25 fighting old men. To be technical, Rocky couldn't carry my jockstrap." Holmes was heavily criticized for the remark, and he later apologized. Judge,Harold Lederman actually scored the fight 143-142 for Spinks. Lederman said, "I had it even going into the 15th and Michael won the 15th."
