It is arguably the greatest heavyweight championship fight ever staged in Las Vegas.

Larry Holmes fought Ken Norton at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for the WBC heavyweight title on June 9, 1978. Holmes had beaten big bad Earnie Shavers three months earlier in a title eliminator, and Norton, who was 40-4 going in, looked to give the 27-0 Holmes a run for his money and boy did he ever!

Ep# 22 Crisis Times Reflections, Insights and Looking Forward with cohosts Marc Ketchel and Larry Holmes

Play
Read more

We’re your hosts, Marc Ketchel and Larry Holmes, and today we’d like to share our reflections, insights, and thoughts about what’s next and how to make the most of the current situation. This is a short conversation but one we hope will give you some perspective and add value to your life. What we discuss is how a simple shift in viewpoint can help each of us, in our own way, get the most of the current circumstances and make the process of going forward more fulfilling and rewarding. 

Show Notes

Jane Goodall “COVID19 has shown us that we are all connected…Many people feel helpless right now, but they must stay hopeful that they can influence one another through compassion and understanding.” 

Jane Goodall and Her Chimps – 60 minutes

Episode #20 Joe Smith – The Transformative Power of Breath

Resources, Tips, and Solutions

Power of Gratitude - Gratitude uplifts (you and others), inspires others to act compassionately 

Dalai Lama on Compassion – Time magazine article

Transformative Power of Selfless Service

In the process of spiritual awakening, the act of selfless service is one of the most mysteriously transformational acts we can do in this life. 

Identify at least one frontline worker; healthcare worker, grocery store workers (often the lowest paid in your community). Find out what you can do to make their life easier or more enjoyable or in some way relieve the unimaginable stress and anxiety they live with day and night. 

It might be contributing to meals for healthcare workers program or to their family in your community or nationally, make face masks for them (they don’t have the time to make them and they are not being supplied adequately in most cases). Reach out to one that you know and ask them what you can do to help them and tell them how much you appreciate what they are doing. 

Importance of Food Banks and the Impact of Hunger

Here’s a startling fact from David Beasley, Executive Director of UN World Food Program, 260 million people are on the brink of starvation right now globally, 300k per day will die today.

Focus globally is you have the resources or locally with these resources:

Feeding America Food Bank Network – 200 Food Banks across the USA.

Bread of the Mighty Food Bank - In our local food bank, $1 feeds 10 meals, which is a huge value for the $1. Not to mention the goodwill and karmic merit that accrues. 

Importance of Social Distancing and Wearing Face Masks

Social distancing is the most effective way to ensure your health and that of others. Wearing a mask is the second most effective way. Use a homemade mask to cover your n95 mask (if you are lucky enough to have one) to extend its life and save those resources. If you have any doubt about this as a win-win strategy to protect yourself and others, read this very short article: https://mashable.com/article/coronavirus-study-80-percent-of-americans-wear-masks/?utm_campaign=FEED+BLAST-Mashable+Top+Stories+Daily-20200509

Ringside Boxing Show: Guest Larry Holmes on today's heavies, yesterday's memories .. plus Wilder's costume and Saturday’s fights

Play
Read more
As excuses go, this one might be a first-ballot hall-of-famer: Deontay Wilder claimed that the 40-pound costume he wore during his ring walk was at least partially responsible for the beatdown he endured against Tyson Fury two weekends ago, sapping his leg strength after just two rounds.
Expert analysts Travis Hartman, Rizwaan Zahid, and John J. Raspanti address this embarrassing dog-ate-my-homework tale, weigh Wilder's wisdom of rushing back into the ring with Fury in July, and offer some insight into Mikey Garcia's victory over Jessie Vargas and 'Chocolatito's' return to form against Kal Yafai in the weekend's top fights.
And then we talk to a bona fide all-time great, Larry Holmes, about his sensational 29-year, 75-fight pro career, and how today's heavyweights would have fared against the legends he faced in his heyday.

Dennis Taylor is host of The Ringside Boxing Show, editor-publisher of www.ringsideboxingshow.com, and co-author (with John J. Raspanti) of "Intimate Warfare: The True Story of the Arturo Gatti and Micky Ward Boxing Trilogy," an Amazon bestseller.

Larry Holmes (born November 3, 1949) is an American former professional boxer who competed from 1973 to 2002. He grew up in Easton, Pennsylvania, which led to his boxing nickname of "The Easton Assassin".

Holmes, whose left jab is rated among the best in boxing history,[1] held the WBC heavyweight title from 1978 to 1983, The Ring magazine and lineal heavyweight titles from 1980 to 1985,[2] and the inaugural IBF heavyweight title from 1983 to 1985. He made 20 successful title defenses,[3][4] placing him third all time, behind only Joe Louis at 25 and Wladimir Klitschko at 22. He also holds the record for the longest individual heavyweight title streak in the modern boxing history. Holmes is one of only five boxers—along with Joe FrazierKen NortonLeon Spinks and Trevor Berbick—to defeat Muhammad Ali; he is the only one to have stopped Ali (while Ali was suffering with early Parkinson's disease).

Holmes won his first 48 professional bouts, including victories over Norton, Ali, Earnie ShaversMike WeaverGerry CooneyTim WitherspoonCarl Williams and Marvis Frazier. He fell one short of matching Rocky Marciano's career record of 49–0 when he lost to Michael Spinks in an upset in 1985. Holmes retired after losing a rematch to Spinks the following year, but made repeated comebacks. He was unsuccessful in three further attempts (against Mike Tyson in 1988, Evander Holyfield in 1992 and Oliver McCall in 1995) to regain the heavyweight title. Holmes fought for the final time in 2002, aged 52, against the 334lb Eric "Butterbean" Esch, and ended his career with a record of 69 wins and 6 losses.[5] He is frequently ranked as one of the greatest heavyweights of all time[6] and has been inducted into both the International Boxing Hall of Fame and World Boxing Hall of Fame.

Ep# 10 – 2019 Revisited and Looking Forward to 2020 – A Conversation between Marc Ketchel and Larry Holmes

Play
Read more

In this conversation, Larry and I have a far-ranging discussion on topics dear to our hearts. We discuss the science and practice of yoga, the power of the mind to be our greatest asset or our most devastating liability. The core teaching of our Guru, Baba Muktananda, “To see the Self everywhere, in everyone.” We discuss the application of Quantum Mechanics, the ubiquitous nature of Kundalini and the interconnectedness of all life.  Larry shares his teachings on ‘PurposefulLleadership. And finally, we share the power of selfless service and the beautiful work that Peter Singer is doing, serving the less fortunate. This is a very rich conversation, intended to start the new year with empowering contemplation. 

There are a few points in the discussion which require further clarity or corrections. Later in the conversation, we discuss the three wealthiest people in the world and specifically the work that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is doing around the world. We wish to clarify that this is in no way an endorsement of the three wealthiest people in the world, their companies, business practices, or approaches to the issues they are addressing in their respective fields. Our discussion is however intended to honor and respect the fact that they, specifically the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, are actively trying to find solutions and address the challenges we all face as human beings. While their solutions or implementation may not be perfect or even optimal, they are proactively doing the best they know-how. 

I (Marc Ketchel) also stated in our conversation that Jeff Bezos was a “wisdom holder”. I meant that in the narrowest sense. Here again, I was simply acknowledging his achievement and perseverance spanning decades in becoming the wealthiest person in the world while completely disrupting the online retail space (for better or worse) and his commitment to continued innovation in multiple sectors. Again, this is in no way an endorsement of his personal lifestyle, business ethics, or any other aspect of his activities.

Second, a correction, I (Marc Ketchel) stated in the conversation that Regenerative Agriculture was number 5 in the list of one hundred ways we are addressing the existential threat of climate change. I misspoke and this is incorrect. In fact, Regenerative Agriculture is number 11 in the list of ways to constructively and sustainably address the biggest threat to our existence on the planet, climate change. However, number 3 is reducing our food waste, which is a huge problem and something each one of us can contribute to in some meaningful way. At the present time, it is estimated that between 40 – 50% of all food produced globally is wasted. This is an alarmingly large number by any standards. 

Number 4 on the list is, in fact, the adoption of a plant-based diet. I hope to address this subject and the larger climate change issue in future episodes.

Looking forward, I’m considering doing a book review on a regular basis in 2020. My interest in non-fiction, actionable literature, ie. yoga practice and philosophy, and the latest paradigm-shifting science is a life-long passion of mine. I try and read at least 50 -75 books a year and enjoy personal relationships with many thought-leading authors in the consciousness space. 

If you are interested in this project and you think you might find value in this sharing please go to my website and leave me a note with the words, Book Review, in the subject line. To be clear, I expect these reviews to be short 15-20-minute reviews that will be insightful and actionable.

Ep # 7 Larry Holmes – Corporate Consultant for some of the largest companies in Australia, Psychologist, Leadership Trainer, Wisdom Talks Podcast co-host and Veteran Meditator.

Play
Read more

In today’s episode, I’m having a conversation with Larry Holmes, psychologist, leadership trainer, and corporate consultant for some of the largest companies in Australia. He’s also my cohost of the Wisdom Talks podcast and long-time personal friend. In fact, our relationship and friendship goes back almost 50 years, to the 1970s when we were both Vedic monks serving our Guru, Swami Muktananda, who we affectionately called Baba, spreading the worldwide Meditation Revolution that he had inspired. 

Larry played a very significant role in Baba’s global mission. He was for the longest time the MC of all his public programs, as well as the special meditation teaching programs called Intensives. In addition, he was Baba’s correspondence secretary, where he interfaced with Baba daily bringing him mail from his thousands of devotees all over the world and communicating Baba’s replies to their questions and inquiries, large and small, spiritual and apparently mundane. The deep teachings he received in that role was that for Baba, there was no difference between the mundane and the spiritual. All of life was simply the ongoing dance of the Divine, a play of Consciousness. 

In our conversation, you will get a sense of Larry’s gentle and laid-back style as well as his self-effacing ordinariness of what has truly been an extraordinary life of deep inner work, personal reflection, and high spiritual circumstance. For those spiritually sensitized, you will hear the thread of Grace that runs through his life. 

Though Larry is known and loved by thousands around the world, as a way of introducing him to those who haven’t had the pleasure to meet him and work with him, I’ve tried to cover the scope of his life. I started the conversation with questions about his family his early life and the lessons he learned from his father and their close-knit family. He shares the trauma of receiving his draft notice at the height of the Vietnam War and the life-changing lessons learned while serving his country during those turbulent times.  He shares lessons learned, thinking of others before himself and the power of the mind to uplift our spirits or create a virtual hell. 

Be sure to stay around for the end as he shares his meeting with Baba Muktananda, the experiences he had and the enlightening wisdom he received through their long and extraordinary personal relationship. Larry shares his insights on Baba’s unique teaching style and ability to transmit meditation through the empowerment known as Shaktipat. 

For those interested in what being with a highly enlightened Guru is like, this episode will be a treasure.
