Okay, so Holmes is going to go on a bum of the week tour for a while, starting with the tomato can known as Big Lastuch. He was outboxing Alexeev pretty easily and won the first 7 rounds until Alexeev's body work paid off. In a rematch, it will be different.
Holmes WILL be Heavyweight champion.

Dipsy Gawn has always said that Holmes gave him his toughest fights and he believes Larry should be world champion by now.
I mean, Alexeev was out-slugged on the weekend by Kinto Mulberry, who, despite being a good fighter isn't on Holmes' level skillwise. Alexeev, like a lot of Blayde run fighters, is great at wearing opponents down with body punching but unless you have awesome power it's too risky to try to slug head to head with him.
I think Holmes will be champion one day but he'll always find it extra tough with a fighter like Alexeev. Better hope "Cuban Link" Pink beats Alexeev this weekend!
