Foreman would have knocked Holmes out. Holmes never faced that league of fighter.
Not much of a win because Cooney was hungover from drugs at that point.
George was too strong for Tyson.
Tyson. Not much happening but Tyson was easily stronger and had the better shots.
They probably both took steroids.
Yes, the Lyle that fought ****ey was NOTHING like the Lyle that fought Foreman. ****ey would be getting a real test. Not sure how ****ey would...

Yeah, and the announcers are clueless.
Might explain some of the rage Tyson had, especially before the Lewis fight.

LeDoux by decision.
How about "no way"?
Wow, Joe's getting taken out like that? Dempsey was no Foreman.
