Iwatched this fight on Closed Circuit at the New Haven Coll. and at one point there was thousands of people crying and weeping out loud! Is was one of the weirdest situations I was ever in. People were running out of the place before it was ended! I have to admit I walked out just before the ref was told enough, theres was nothing but heart left and that heart that served him so well made him take a terrible beating that night!
I don't think Holmes was the same fighter after that! It affected him negatively. Ray.
