Default Re: The Fix In The Jungle?

To add to the conspiracy....

Foreman had paid the ref a substancial amount of money to ignore his 'pushing' which some referees saw as illegals and others did not.

After paying him the ref remarked that 'this was nothing - you should have seen home much muhammad's camp gave me.'

Gave him for what? Foreman never found out.

Was it to allow him to lie on the ropes? Or was it for a quicker count? Foreman always claimed he never heard a nine. He was up at 8 and the ref waved it off as 10.

Probably a load of BS though.
