Re: How Come Ali Has Never Been TKO'd from a Bodyshot?
George Foreman says that one of of his clearest recollections of the fight in Zaire is hitting Ali with a massive body blow that would have finished most fighters. Foreman said he could see that it hurt Ali, and Ali winced...but only for a second, then he just scowled at George as if to say "That the best you got?"
Pretty dispiriting, I'd imagine...especially after flattening Frazier and Norton with ease. Ali's refusal to be hurt or intimidated by Foreman played a key part in Ali getting the win.
