Default Re: Foreman struggling with Peralta leaves me unsatisfied

Monday Night - February 16, 1970

George Foreman, the 213 lb. undefeated heavyweight, improved his
record to 16-0-0, but was unable to register his 15th Knockout.

Foreman was 'befuddled' by 34 year-old Argentinain veteran -
Gregrio Peralta. Though Foreman threw 3-times as many punches
as his opponent, he was unable to hurt Gregorio.

Peralta, at 197 lbs. was able to slip punches by bobbing and weaving,
and was able to avoid Foreman's big punches by sliding and moving
constantly.

Peralta cut Foreman over the right eye in Round 5, and the blood dripped
throughout the bout. Foreman was only able to rock the tough Argentinan
late in Round 5, and in many exchanges looked 'puzzled'.

Gregorio Peralta, had been unbeaten in his last 32-bouts dating back to
September 1965. The Argentinan, who usually enters the ring at 182 lbs.,
appeared to be slighty out-of-shape.

Scorecards;
* Mark Conn...........9-1-0
* Jack Gibbons........7-3-0
* Tony Castellano....5-4-1
