Even though Frazier lost this fight, Have any of you ever checked out the stare down Joe gives Big George!!?? ( In there 1st fight ).. Now that's a mean lookin Frazier, Foreman said his knees were shakin so bad that Joe wouldn't notice. But just look at Joes face when they bring them to the center of the ring it will give you goosebumps Joe looks so scary!..

It sounds like it'd be comical, but I came away thinking, "Damn, he's ready to fight." Put me off a bit. I knocked him out with one punch about 90 seconds later, which was a big letdown.

George Foreman was intimidating, even in old age, because he seemed so relaxed, at peace, and yet focused. You knew you were in for a hard night.
lmao nice

Foreman had a scary staredown, but against Ali it didn't work. Ali used it against him and made him lose control. That Ali tactic did backfire against Smokin' Joe though..

Yeah Joe was a pretty scary looking guy, and knowing he would keep coming at you for 12-15 rounds non stop would have to weigh in on any mans mind.

Joe Louis' staredown must have been intimidating - as even though Louis didn't bother trying to make his work any easier by indimidating his opponent, those shark-like, souless, dead eyes surely must have done so regardless.

LOL you gotta love those stoic russians, nothings cooler imo than not needing to show off or tell anyone, then when you do demonstrate it with action its all the more impressive surprising and awe inspiring to others.

In short that moronic debt collector is needy, needs others to feed his ego, the russian dosnt need anyone and relies on himself to become the awesome person he is.

This is a classic!! Tyson looked like a great white shark - Infact this was one hell of a fun fight - it was hilarious - the way McNeeley sprinted across the ring at Tyson and just whales away and suddenly he gets clipped and kind of falls back like he's climbing a wall and has fallen back off the wall - never seen a fighter look more like "oh shit what the??" And then he starts hopping and skipping around the Ring the referee can't even give him his standing 8!? Hahaha classic! Gotta say I wish more fighters who know there doomed would at least go nuts and throw everything and kitchen sink - wish more would have at least done that against the Klitschko's just to see what would've happened haha

Mcneeley vs Wlad would have been the most hilarious fight ever.
