Ex-heavyweight champion Larry Holmes has unretired again. At least, that's what he told the Philadelphia Daily News.

"I'm not retired," he said. "Larry Holmes will fight again. You can write it."

Holmes announced his retirement after his April 19 split-decision loss to Michael Spinks.

"Larry Holmes is going to be out there fighting because I'm going to muddy the waters," he said. "I don't see how HBO can have a unification tournament without the real champion, and that's me. The people won't go for it."
