It was part of his defence, and was pretty clever, using his mass to at least tire his opponent, to save them ancient legs a bit.

i was thinking this today, i cant think of an instance where foreman hugged/grabbed.

another tactic in his come back that i liked was the cross arm defence, and when it got too much he would walk with his cross arm defence into the opponent to get them off him.

Well, I wonder where he picked that up from?

He also used the tactic of pushing the opponents arms back at the elbows, for defense, like Bob Foster. The man had under-rated skills, like a quick, solid jab when he decided to use it, against Ron Lyle.
