Default Re: The Fix In The Jungle?

no, a few sharp old-timers and experienced fight guys told me Big George can,t lift his hands after 5 rds and a sharp heavyweight beats him. I remembering one guy telling me that Charles would eat him up infighting....I loved George and his undefeated record, even though he had the worst opposition but looking back with what i know today its easy to see him getting beat by Ali,Young,Charles, and Walcott but back then I saw things differently, in retrospect I can see why he did not want to fight Quarry but Foreman despite his weakness had a lot of strengths his power and he showed his heart getting off the floor and out-willing Lyle in their fight...the older George improved on stamina,smarts but legs,speed were not area's of improvement.
