Re: Is George Foreman the a masive underaceiver?
If he had had Moore as head coach all the way, no Sadler, and been able to combine the relative explosiveness and speed of the young George with the smartness and coolness of the older George, who knows... But still, I can't see him as a technical marvel. Don't think he had it in him to be a Joe Louis kind of fighter.
That's why I'm more inclined to call him over-achiever, but who knows. He started late and got taught to fall in love with his power, strength and aggression. If he had started early and got, say, Arcel as a coach when turning pro... Intriguing thought.
