    D`Amato knew more about boxing than any boxing commentator.

    Knowing the outcome while watching this you can see it like a slow motion car crash

    He was trying to corral him all night to the right hand with his left.

    Not just the round highlighted in the OP Atlas was begging moorer to stop going left all night. Hed beg moorer dont go left all minute between rounds then Moorer would come out and go left

    Seem like a battle Foreman trying to maneuver moorer as much as moorer not listening to his coach

    Great find @mark ant , I wasn’t aware that Teddy had pointed that out in the corner. Atlas has become a bit of a caricature of himself over the years but he has amazing insight and knowledge.

    I agree Mark, but the commentator made a snide remark like You Always Talk About Cus.

    Michael Moorer did not listen to Teddy Atlas.
    He was too confident (he beat Evander Holyfield, who also beat George Foreman), he underestimated George Foreman (unlike Evander Holyfield and Tommy Morrison), and he paid the price for it.
    He had a score of 35-0 and thought he was invincible.
    Watch Michael Moorer's facial expression in the last round against Evander Holyfield; he thought it was Godzilla, and George Foreman just showed him where he belonged.
