    I thought about this when posting. If it were a fight like, say, Ali-Lyle I'd agree that Lyle was certainly not dominated. But Ali had George's number all the way, coming and going. His domination started in Africa (and before - see the Foreman-Norton broadcast) before the fight with the mind games and the way Ali was celebrated and George ignored or boo'd. Then Ali fought a masterful fight, technically and psychologically, before the TKO. In the months and years after the fight George was a mess. Ali continued to taunt him. It took ages for Foreman to get his head back together. I think he was pretty thoroughly dominated.

    I don't bother with Ali's typical prefight antics. It would have been a domination if Ali himself had not taken a hammering.
