Default Re: Lyle vs Foreman - Why Was Lyle Able To...

Foreman was easy to counter and Lyle may have had better wiskers than Frazier. or because he was a two armed fighter. Foreman was wide open to be hit but only after the Ali loss did he step up in class (Norton was made for him) he fought a solid guy who fought back and was not afraid. Foreman did show his heart in the end of that fight (the winning factor) Lyle was a good puncher but not a killer puncher. It was a combination of having a good chin and fighting back and letting his hands go. Foreman was a talented and strong heavy but beatable, he would have lost to a few simular styled guys that night
