Chat with Larry Holmes
Welcome to SportsNation! On Thursday, we'll have former boxer Larry Holmes stopping by to talk about "Muhammad and Larry" that is part of ESPN's 30 for 30 project, commemorating ESPN's 30th anniversary. The film debuts Tuesday night (8, ESPN).
30 for 30 is an unprecedented documentary series featuring 30 films from some of today's finest storytellers, detailing the events that transformed the sports landscape from 1979 to 2009. "Muhammad and Larry" tells the story of Muhammad Ali and Larry Holmes as they got set for their fight in October 1980. During training before the fight, Albert and David Maysles took an intimate look at Ali, while also looking at the mild-mannered champion Holmes. The Maysles footage never received a public screening or airing.
Holmes retired in 2002 with a career record of 69-6, winning his first 48 fights. He had 20 successful title defenses and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in June 2008.
