|Former heavyweight boxing champ Larry Holmes has signed on as Casino Fortune spokesperson and promptly received backing from one of the world's oldest online casino to challenge George Foreman. The arrangement promises the most anticipated boxing event in recent boxing history; Holmes vs. Foreman.|
George Foreman and Larry 'The Easton Assassin' Holmes were signed to lace up the gloves in 1999 at the Houston Astrodome when Forman inexplicably backed out at the last second. Since that time, Foreman has been dodging Holmes's attempts to unite the two in the ring, pitting two of the greatest heavyweight champions of all times against each other.
Larry's last fight came in 2002 when he easily took care of Eric 'Butterbean' Esch in a decision that lasted ten rounds. Since, that time, Holmes has been training everyday for a chance to end his long and prestigious career with a knockout against the elusive but very vocal George Foreman.
'I don't appreciate the fact that George has been saying he's looking for a fight and doesn't even name me,' said an angry Holmes. 'Foreman needs to stop hiding behind his barbecue grill and step-up, so I can knock the fat out of him.'
CasinoFortune.com has agreed to put up the money for the fight because they believe in Holmes's talent. Larry Holmes recently signed an agreement with the online gaming site, helping Casino Fortune to announce their two millionth American customer. Casino Fortune realizes this will be a fight for the ages, little more than a school yard brawl between two of the most talented ex-champions boxing has ever known.
