Default Re: George Foreman's weight for the Dwight Qawi fight

In the 70's, Foreman was considered to be big. Foreman was also considered to be immovable. A 220 lb Foreman would not have been that big by near 1990 or so.

Throughout Foreman's career, he was the firm footed guy coming forward. This did not change with age. Some NFL linemen claim that being strong is not enough for solid footing, and that extra weight is necessary for success. I can't help but feel that Foreman thought the extra pounds were a benefit.

Yes, this was the best part of the fight because George got pissed and then turned up the power to put him away in short order.
