Washington Redskins legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Darrell Green — standing at 5-foot-9 — met Gheorghe Muresan — 7-foot-7 — and former boxing champion Larry Holmes over the weekend at Fight Night.

Some say gentle giant, I say gentleman. Glad to know you my friend.

“Some say gentle giant, I say gentleman. Glad to know you my friend,” Green captioned the photo.

Green and Mursean at one point each called Washington, D.C. home during their professional careers.

Green, of course, spent 20 seasons with the Redskins (1983-2002), while Mursean spent his first four NBA seasons (1993-97) with the Washington Bullets.

Later in the evening, Green and Holmes posed for a picture together.

Finally met the champ, Mr. Larry Holmes. I didn't even get mad when he told me he was a cowboy fan lol!

Holmes, whose legendary job was felt by opponents, won 69 matches (44 by KO) in 29 years as a professional boxer. Like Green, Holmes is a Hall of Famer in his respective sport.
