Pete Dexter's classic 1982 series about his friend Tex Cobb's heavyweight title fight against Larry Holmes.
"And that's what he'll do against Holmes. He'll take the jabs and the right hands, and then he'll throw jabs and right hands back, mostly to the body. Two and three punches to one. And in the eighth or ninth round, I think Larry Holmes will lose his title."
Is that how it happened?
