Re: The Fix In The Jungle?
The way big George was throwing those punches he could've launched Ali into space if he connected. Ali just outsmarted him, As Ali stated many times before the fight "here comes George with a left..................here comes George with a right" Unlike Frazier Ali wasn't there when George threw the punches and by the time of the rope a dope rounds big George was simply punching himself out. I bet Ali couldn't raise his arms for days after the fight, they must have been very sore. There was no fix, just a clever strategy that big George didn't wake up too. I think George Foreman believed all the hype about himself, he believed after the demolition of both Frazier and Norton that what the press was saying about Ali's life being in danger was a reality, Ali always fought smartly. Foreman underestimated Ali that's all.
