Re: Foreman - Is it telling that...
No, I think it was a case where Foreman was an anomaly in being so good for his age.
There was a thread earlier about weak linear champs in strong eras, and Moorer and Foreman were two of the guys I thought who fit. Moorer was a pretty skilled southpaw but often a lazy fighter, and didn't have the sturdiest of chins. He also ate his way up to heavyweight.
Foreman did amazing things for his age, but he was also very careful in picking his opposition.
