Listen to what Frazier and norton said of his about talking with Chuvalo? I had the pleasure of meeting Chuvalo back in the mid 80's and had a great conversation with him. Although he was insistent Ali could not punch he told me the force Foreman generated with his punches was unreal. He said his jab was like being hit with the end of a telephone pole and he cut the ring off like no other fighter he ever was in with. You obviously did not live through that era....I did so I have a perspective you lack. Most fighters down through history fight mostly so so fighters but there legacy is built on major bouts such as his fights with Frazier x 2 and Norton. Could a devastating puncher be outboxed by a slick boxer...of course....since when is that anything new you jackass.
This, foreman was very skilled in cutting off the ring.
