Re: No fighter could do what Foreman did in his career.
First...you can't say Foreman was "nothing special". Doing what he did shows he was indeed special. Was he the greatest...no....but in his prime he had a physical presence in the ring second to none, truly sledgehammer punches from both fists, iron chin and a tremendous will to win. Add to this killer instinct, add to this a great jab, add to this a great ability to cut off the ring. Ive seen lots of hwts hit a heavy bag...Ive never seen a fighter hit like Foreman hit. Just booming shots. He was an olympic gold medalist, Hwt champion beating an undefeated champion thought to be unbeatable at that time and came back nearly 20 years after winning the championship to rewin it from the true champion.
