Larry Holmes wins towing dispute
Larry Holmes, the former heavyweight boxing champion, won a legal fight regarding a towing company and his Easton, Pa. restaurant.
Holmes, 63, who owns Champ’s Corner on a stretch of road through the eastern Pennsylvania town named in his honor, sued a neighboring business in January that he said would regularly and wrongfully tow vehicles from a parking lot the two businesses shared.
According to The Express-Times of Easton, a Northampton County judge ruled that Riverstar Properties must stop towing vehicles until the lawsuit concludes.
Holmes said he and the restaurant have an agreement, and the towing is hurting business.
Holmes, an Easton native and current resident, reigned as world heavyweight champion for seven years from 1978 to 1985.
