Default Larry Holmes (1978) vs Riddick Bowe (1992)

Who would you pick to win in their prime years? I pick Holmes. Bowe had a tendency to get hit a lot and I think Holmes jab would give him trouble.

Riddick Bowe? Are you serious? The same Riddick Bowe who shamelessly ran from Lennox Lewis?

Larry Holmes is shamefully underrated. He is one of the best ever, Riddick Bowe is not.

No way can you dismiss Bowe like that. Peak Bowe was a beast, and as the Norton fight showed, Larry was a little raw in '78. Riddick's size and power would definitely be a problem. I'd favour Holmes but I wouldn't rule Bowe out.

Larry Holmes most likely would dominate on the outside with the jab, Bowe if he could get inside would do some damage.

Holmes. He was better and more disciplined than Bowe.
