True of his first career when he remained mentally stable, not so much his second career.

George Foreman used some mental tricks of Ali to psych out his opponents, he knew from Zaire how important the mental aspect plays out. An example was during the weigh in for Moorer, when he stepped off the scale with glasses Foreman confronted him and said something along the lines of "What's the matter boy you afraid to look me in the eye?".
