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

Ron was roughly the same size as Foreman and was a decent boxer with good power to boot. Joe was quite a bit smaller and had to try and reach George where Ron found it much easier to reach Foreman. Ron's style made it difficult for George as well. Ron was a decent counterpuncher with fairly quick hands. No Ali mind you but pretty good none theless. He didn't have to come right at George the way Frazier did in order to hurt a fighter. Size and style is what made Lyle a more dangerous foe for George than Frazier.
