Default Re: Foreman struggling with Peralta leaves me unsatisfied

Foreman wasnt prime when he fought Peralta! He was young. Foreman fought Peralta in 1970,didnt win the title for a few years when he hit his stride.
And Foreman fought Peralta twice. The second time,Foreman KO'd Peralta in 10.
Peralta was experienced veteran and he gave Foreman rounds. Giving someone rounds and a tough fight = Foreman struggled? No.

The first fight was a learning curve and Foreman was not yet prime. The second fight which was a year later,Foreman KO'd Peralta in 10 rounds. And the second fight was still years before Foreman would beat Frazier.
