Tyson and Tillis, Foreman and Peralta, Doug Jones and Ali(Though Jones was better then a trial horse, being a contender in his own right, off and on).
But, Holmes still would have beaten Foreman. The jab, the counter right hands, and the sound lateral movement accompanied with the crazy grit, toughness, and determination seal it.
Aye. And Holmes always wanted that fight very badly. He's still bitter (I know, big surprise, subject considering) about Foreman's success and riches and ranking and the regard for the Moorer win. He wanted Foreman to give him a golden oldies big money showdown, because he figured he had every thing to match up well with him. That fight would've brought good money too. But, I think Foreman knew it wouldn't have done him any good to drop one to another old contender.
