When we talk about heavyweight boxing royalties, there are few names that pop up immediately.
George Foreman and Muhammad Ali are probably two of the greatest boxers to ever put a pair of gloves on and people in the ’60s and the ’70s should consider themselves lucky that they had the chance to watch those two icons in their primes.
Ali’s movement and speed were second to one, while Foreman’s brutal power and hooks were knocking heads off all day every day. The pair even met in 1974 in Africa.
The younger Foreman was considered the favorite to win it all, but in the end, it was Ali’s hands that were raised.
“Muhammad Ali, was so fast; ‘1 wrong move is all it takes for him to get you.’ No one told me this. To this day surprised. Great guy though.”
