WHILE he didn’t know much about Wigan it was still great to see such a genuine a sporting legend as Larry Holmes visiting the borough.

His stay at Holland Hall was a real coup for the hotel and he was kind enough to give up his time to speak to the Wigan Evening Post.

The borough has a long history when it comes to famous people visiting and Holmes is just the latest in a long list which includes Pele and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Hopefully Larry enjoyed his time here and will return some day.
