Larry Holmes Briefly Hospitalized
High blood sugar sends Easton heavyweight champ who lives in Palmer Township to hospital for two days.
Former heavyweight champion Larry Holmes is pledging to watch his diet after spending two days in the hospital due to high blood sugar.
Holmes—an Easton native who lives in Palmer Township—told the Express-Times he was hospitalized after feeling drowsy and lightheaded Tuesday.
“I’m all right now," he told the newspaper. "I feel good. I never had anything like this happen before, but it runs in my family.”
Holmes, who will turn 64 later this year, was world heavyweight champion from 1978 to 1985. He still maintains a presence in Easton, owning Champ's Corner, a restaurant on the street that bears his name.
