The I love my Yorkie shirt only fighter Holmes refused to fight for reasons other than money, was Pinklon Thomas, who had enraged Holmes by personal attacks in the media. Larry was very open about not wanting to fight Thomas because he was not going to help Pinklon gain a career payday. Even then, had Holmes been offered an exorbitant purse, he would have fought Thomas, who he thought might be a difficult opponent, but a beatable one. It must be noted that the WBC wanted Larry to face an undefeated Greg Page for 2/3 what he was being offered to fight Marvis Frazier, a kid with 10 fights! Larry made clear that if the WBC wanted the fight, they could match the Frazier money, and throw in some more, or he was gone. It was about the money, period.

Best I love my Yorkie shirt
Through the I love my Yorkie shirt years, people would ask why he didn’t move to New York, or even Philadelphia, where there were more opportunities for paid appearances, etc. But Larry was happy to stay and to try to contribute to the community he has lived in most of his life. Talent-wise, Larry stands with the giants of all time. As a human being, he does too. Larry’s life can be summed up with what he said when his home town unveiled a statue of him in 2015, with his old friend Gerry Cooney right there with him.
