Winning the undisputed heavyweight title by destroying the unbeaten Joe Frazier-(Frazier was the only man to have beaten Ali!)

OR

The miracle stoppage of undisputed champion Michael Moorer almost 22 years later!(at the young age of 45)

Which is the biggest win?

Foremans stoppage win over Frazier was his most impressive career win followed by his annihilation of Ken Norton

Yep, still the Frazier win.......even if he was a bigger underdog against Moorer.

I may be being a bit thick this morning but I fear that Moorer was unbeaten till he faced Foreman too.

Yes, Moorer was unbeaten, and he won the title by beating Evander.

The Frazier KO but the Moorer win redeemed him and cemented his status as a top 10 all-time great heavyweight.

"Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier!"

We all know that. Some of the most famous words in boxing history.

Probably the Frazier win but as TheGreatA said, the Moorer win cemented his legacy.

He certainly earned more from the Moorer fight than the Frazier fight.

I wonder which win Foreman himself feels prouder of.

Everybody knew? I George admits himself he was afraid of Frazier going into that bout. Frazier was the big favorite before the fight.

And I thought Moorer was doing a number on George before George connected.

But it is amazing that George won the title title twice twenty years apart.

Frazier was slow moving?

And, if I remember correctly Frazier was the odds on favorite before the fight.

Frazier fight was more important. Moorer fight was more shocking.

The Moorer fight it kind of lessen the Jimmy Young and Tommy Morrison loses, it cemented him as one of the top HW all time. The way he dispatch Fraizer is almost as equal but the Moorer fight has more significance

I agree with both these guys.
