Re: Foreman - Is it telling that...
Foreman was an exception.
Look at Ali, Frazier, Norton, Lyle and Shavers. They never carried any real success past the 70s.
There are two types of fighters that can have extended careers: Technically sound fighters who rely on thier technical ability or Big Strong Durable power punching fighters.
From the HW division guys like Holmes, Lewis are guys that, if in similar circumstances they could have replicated Foreman's sucess.
Remember George's level of opposition was handpicked. Its not like he tore through the division's elite.
