Default Ali v Joe Fraiser and Foreman on same night

1) After Ali beat Foreman in 1974, I remember him saying he wanted a fight between Fraizer and Foreman on the same night.

This is how he wanted it, he wanted a 20 round bout

10 rounds with Foreman then after

10 rounds with Fraizer

If this had happened how would it have gone...


2) Furthermore instead of making another thread, i just wanna ask...

why did ali before the Foreman fight warm up so much, he was totally sweating before the fight against Foreman even before it had even begun, i think if he hadnt done that he wouldnt have to do the rope a dope as he wouldnt have been tired.

I remember Lewis saying a fighter needs to keep warmed up, if his body isnt sweating more chances of getting knocked out, but Alis warm up before the Foreman fight was rather extensive.

I asked my friend this who does a bit of boxing, this was he believes. When a fighter is in the ring before a fight, especially a big fight, sometimes the body can get so nervous, sweaty, that instantly you can see yourself shaking, and just freeze, maybe Ali wanted to keep his body moving, he didnt want that freezing motion that a fighter can experience, so kept himself moving before the fight, even though the warm up was really long, and he was really sweating.

so what you guys think, of the two comments, two threads into one.

He'd have got stopped and possibly badly hurt in the second fight, he wasn't superman, this is Joe Frazier and George Foreman we're talking about.

Obviously this was never a serious proposition from Ali though

Ali was always saying a bunch of sh!t.

Both Frazier & Foreman put serious hurt on Ali.

The first question is madness...I would fear for Ali's life if that happened.

Secondly...the temperatures in Zaire were over 35 degrees C. I am sure I remember watching him sweat bucket loads at a presser over there. Sure he may have warmed up alot as well I dont know. But you would perspire standing still in that heat.

Lets make this a triple thread....a bottle of home made wine and two bottles of tuborg later...Leonard 117 Hagler 111

Well seeing as he said it after the Foreman fight and Foreman said he would have changed his approach and jabbed more ect i think Ali would have been beaten by George if not a knockout the when he went against Frazier it would have been really really bad to watch

I say Id fear for Ali's life as well...But it was all talk, remember Ali was the ultimate promoter and excelled with puttin asses in them seats. Settin the stage for the future is all....He couldnt see the future, but what would it be?, A rematch with George or another fight with Joe?..

Ali was just joking about taking them both on the same night ! I can't believe that anyone would have taken that statement literally.
