He was down once versus Tillis, a guy who did have power. Holmes was down versus Snipes and Kevin Isaac -- so what? And Page 'Laboured' to a win over Snipes? He totally dominated Snipes.

Curiously, Tim Witherspoon in his live streams really seems to rate Greg Page's punch power, which did surprise me but I guess is corroborated by Page's KO figures. Ultimately Holmes knows boxing, saw Page from ringside multiple times and didn't want to fight him. Page's life unraveling from 84 onwards doesn't retroactively prove Holmes wrong.
I think Alphabet politics is to blame, that a lack of a big purse. Homes did beat Bey who defeated Page and that was the end of the demand for the Holmes vs Page fight.

In hindsight the win over Witherspoon in 1983 was better than Page ever was. By the way Witherspoon beat Page too who was beaten by Holmes.

It is a Page's fan or Holmes haters dream that Page would have been Homes from 1981- 1984. What if Holmes vs Page was made in 1985 as opposed to Holmes vs. Spinks?

Page doesn't do as well as he could have done in 1983.

well, if this version of Greg Page would have showed up to fight,
Larry Holmes would have been in a 'heap of trouble" for sure !
Greg Page looks like he may have been in "the Matrix" for this one !
