On his way out of the restaurant he stops at the bar to watch an ESPN fight, the once-beaten Morrison trying to rebuild his box-office potential. Holmes pauses long enough to see Morrison score a knockout. Holmes-Holyfield, then Holmes-Foreman, then Holmes-Morrison. It could happen.
The next day he will leave for Jacksonville, where he'll train "serious-serious" (and maybe fish a bit from his own dock). Seeing Morrison fight, he feels that his own fight is almost upon him. Maybe he will build a city hall. His morning funk is long gone. Driver Ben packs the Holmes family into the long white limousine, and together they sail off into the night. Holmes gives directions into Easton.
