Foreman, Holmes To Fight Jan. 23

July 10, 1998

NEW YORK (AP) _ George Foreman and Larry Holmes will fight on Jan. 23, 13 days after Foreman’s 50th birthday.

Holmes will be 49 by the time of the fight at a site expected to be announced at a news conference Wednesday in New York.

The date was confirmed Friday by Roger Levitt of Boxing International, promoter of the pay-per-view match between the two former heavyweight champions.

Levitt said the fight could be held at Las Vegas, Houston or New York. New York’s Madison Square Garden, however, appears to be a long shot.
