Larry Holmes was one of the greatest heavyweight champions of all-time. “The Easton Assassin” even beat “The Greatest,” Muhammad Ali, though Ali was a shell of himself when the two boxed in 1980.
A year later, crews finished up construction on Holmes’ massive home in Easton, Pa., about an hour and 15 minutes north of Philadelphia along the Delaware River. Holmes, who hosts the amazing What the Heck Were They Thinking?! with Larry Holmes on local cable TV in eastern Pa., recently put the house up for sale at $1.1 million.
A little more than a million dollars buys you quite a bit near Easton, Pa., including a private bathroom with every bedroom, a sauna and steam room, a theater room and your very own built-in beauty shop!
But there’s more, all enclosed in nifty early-’80s architecture that has aged a bit like the 64-year-old Holmes’ wardrobe.
