Immediately prior to the ring walk, Sadler had given Foreman water that tasted like it had medicine in it. Foreman had remarked on the odd taste to Sadler

2. Foreman said that after three rounds he felt like he had gone fifteen rounds.

That sounds like the same water bottle trick they did on Wlad in Brewster 1.

The ropes were not intentionally loosened it was the heat that made them loose. Also it does not matter if Foreman got up as Ali would have won that fight anyway and most likely would have still knocked him out as foreman at that point had nothing left in him.

No. He is everything I said he is and more. Nothing to do with this bullshit, bait thread or the nonsense opinions of retards.

That's a pretty lame excuse - like there's never been fights in hot weather before? But who ever saw ropes like that before? Take the Holmes - Cooney outdoor megafight in Las Vegas, for instance. The temp was 90 not counting the bright tv lights on the ring. It must have been well over 100 in the ring. Why should heat make ropes sag anyway? They don't melt.

There is no proof that the ropes were intentionally loosened absolutely NONE it is all just accusations and Dundee said he never aided in the rope-a-dope tactic by loosening them. Also i saw ropes like that on FNF a couple of weeks ago in an outside fight and even after they tried tightening them they were still incredibly loose.

Foreman looked doped to me. Maybe he just had lousy stamina. It's impossible to know whether his water was spiked or not.

Foreman certainly didn't trust Dick Saddler. I don't know much about Saddler outside of what Foreman has said and included in his book.
