No shame in that. 16oz gloves Bizzaro dropped him with. Heavily, with Slim Jim Robinson laughing in the corner.

Any doubt that it was something supernatural holding him up is dispelled when Ali faints.

What a great, great fighter.
Well said. Frank Lotierzo nailed it when he said Ali didn't "box" to victory but simply outfought this "unbeatable foe" with such shining confidence, depth of know-how and skill, and sheer manhood that it was no wonder this feat made him king of the world.

Fish swim, birds fly. Foreman knocked you out. And he did his best. He was the most devastating two-handed puncher of all time! And yet this madman has the temerity to stand against the ropes and goad him to hit him as hard as he can?! Foreman's world was understandably turned upside down when he found himself the loser by kayo that morning in the jungle. Pigs don't fly! Muhammad Ali shouldn't have knocked out George Foreman!

Tyson may be criticized for quitting mentally because he was stopped five times while Foreman was only stopped on one occassion. Tyson quit against McBride and many seem to think that he could have continued against Danny Williams.
