Of course this was not the case...Foreman just missed the count as his gloves left the canvas.
I agree. He was down a good 10 seconds.

Yes, Saddler went to work for Ali's camp.

I've never heard Ali say why he didn't give Foreman a rematch.

Well then I guess that just proves our earlier point; he's been flip-flopping all over the place about it for years. Have a look at Hauser's book and see what we're talking about. I'm not disputing what is apparently said in the 2007 book, I haven't read it. The overall point was that his claims can only be taken just so seriously because of the changing story we get from him.

I see what you're saying and you make a good point.

He keeps flopping back and forth between denying it and saying it's true.

Yeah, that brings his credibility into question.

i read where ali sent prostitutes to foreman's suite and george spent all night having butt-*** with all the whores the night before the fight because he was afraid to get anyone pregnant. sorry to be so crude but this story was out in the last few years but i can't find a link. the story/interview talked about how some of the girls had to be taken to the emergency room to be stitched up. ouch!

No, that's all right.......all threads here lead either to Foreman butt *** or Duran pooping somehow............strange how that works. Another page or two of replies and we'd have gone there anyway.

I feel like Caesar looking asst the statue of Alexander. Or more appropriately: like Salieri reading Mozart's sheet music.

It's a terrible and empty feeling.

Get with the program, dude........butt *** drains power from a man's legs, even Foreman's. Miracle he even managed to make the ringwalk.

Because they provide half the skills and action as the littler guys, but they're all people can talk about with boxing. They haven't earned the attention.
