    “Okay take a point it ain’t going to points”
    Accurate way of describing George’s 70s style.

    Think it’s great when they interview these old timers! So many great stories and love hearing their opinions.
    Shocked he thought Frazier hit hardest

    He hit the cleanest I’ve heard a few men say Joe hit the more painful of the two or that Earnie hit like a shotgun and put you to sleep quicker then George.

    Strangely they always rephrase or explain themselves and say that Foreman hit the heaviest had the most thudding power if you will, Power that made you want to throw up or make you dizzy to make you quit one such boxer his name escapes me was kicked by a mule in his youth and said Foreman had the more power of the two.

    How do you measure power?
    Pain or effect?

    Because truth be told I’ve only ever seen one man lift an Iron chinned HOF undefeated champion in the prime of his life off his feet with an uppercut.

    Frazier jumped dazed and confused from the shot, hurt, I don't think Foreman lifted him off his feet, although most say it !

    I’ve seen the fight my opinion stands but regardless of who is right or what you or I think it was freaky to see happen.

    its impossible for a man of near equal size to lift another man off his feet clear of the floor

    Some might say a lot of things are impossible a man with no imagination has no wings.
