Re: Lyle vs Foreman - Why Was Lyle Able To...
Foreman got lucky the bell rang when it did in that first round; he was in bad shape. But yeah, Lyle had physical traits that allowed him to deliver his power shots in a more direct, precise manner than did Frazier. Frazier had to crowd you; Lyle could stand back and throw bombs. And I think Lyle was closer to Foreman power wise than Lyle was to Frazier.
