We here at The Five Count believe there is nothing more American than punching people in the face. That’s why this Independence Day edition of the show featured exclusive interviews with two of America’s most legendary boxers. First we were joined by “The Easton Assassin” Larry Holmes. Larry was the WBC Heavyweight Champion from 1978 to 1983, The Ring Heavyweight Champion from 1980 to 1985, and the IBF Heavyweight Champion from 1983 to 1985. He’s fought everyone from to Muhammad Ali to Mike Tyson and Joe Frazier to Evander Holyfield. During the show he discussed his early days in boxing, his history with Muhammad Ali, and his legacy as a champion. It was a real knockout!
For round two we were joined by the one and only George Foreman. “Big George” is a former two-time World Heavyweight Champion, with his second reign at age 45 making him the oldest World Heavyweight Champion in boxing history. He’s also a successful entrepreneur and the man behind the George Foreman Grill. During the show he discussed his early days in boxing, his memories of “The Rumble in the Jungle” in Zaire, and his second career as an entrepreneur. George bless America!
