    I agree, I often watch that fight just to savor Foreman's jab. I highly reccomend that fight to anyone interested in the heavyweight left.

    I had Foreman ahead four points at the end, he got robbed imo.

    I watched this the other night. George was a certified monster in this fight.

    Which one, Rodrigues or Moorer ? I think he was great in both fights but for very different reasons of course

    Moorer for the finish and the ring IQ to set it up, but I was referring to the brief pummeling of Adilson. Big George really turning into a hook off a right hand was like watching a wrecking ball hit a building and seeing it crumble.

    I think he instantly broke Adilson's nose with that. He didn't punch at him, he punched right through him.

    Agreed. Saw that fight on the undercard of Tyson vs Tillman in the summer of 1990 on HBO. I expected Rodrigues to last a little longer against George than he did against Evander given that I still had some doubts about Foreman’s abilities at that age. It was a great performance against a man who was at least fringe level

    And Big George said “I’ll have 24 nuggets and two large fries to go with that....”
