    Oh really? Show me those moments when Smith showed he was a good boxer.

    Did also see how good Smith was at eating punches with his face? That's something you should teach your boxers.

    He can't be a real trainer. If he is, he needs to be fired immediately. Did you read his hilarious game plan for how Smith should beat Foreman? He posted it earlier in this thread. Just attack Foreman in a straight line with no regard for defense the way Smith went after Witherspoon and Weaver.

    I'm surprised and flattered that so many clever posters on both sides have jumped into this debate. Kudos, gentlemen.

    It might not be the best, but it's certainly better than that of Zaire Foreman.

    There really wasnt any difference between him and Ruddock. Its becoming apparent that we are not dealing with reality Here. Some posters on Here Will force delusions on others to support their views.

    No he wasn't. And I wasn't comparing him to Smith, but to Ruddock, in response to someone's post.

    Foreman being slow is a reality, not a delusion.

    Ruddock gassed in 6 rounds against Morrison
    Ruddock gassed in 7 rounds against Jaco
    Foreman gassed in 8 against Ali

    Weird. Why wouldn't you lie?

    One versus Ali in a humid Jungle in Africa ...

    The other versus Jaco in Canada in April ...

    Same thing I guess. ;)
