Default Re: Ali vs Foreman : 2

... I sense the rumblings of a rampage! I read one of these by you and was highly entertained.

I tend to agree with you. Also, fighters were more willing to back away and were allowed to clinch far more. Of course, wrestling was part and parcel of sound strategy. I would also offer that it seems that the output then was also less because there were potentially far more rounds. I don't see what others claim on this site -short, destructive combinations of the kind that more modern punchers are prone to inflict. The gloves were also relatively like mittons, so even if they did, the fight was more likely to end.
