It's kinda like if they were reporting Bin Laden's death and showed a picture of Hitler instead.

It's amazing the sort of basic errors like this that are made by supposedly informed people. I once saw a newspaper article about Jack Johnson which used a photo of James Earl Jones. Last night a radio presenter said "when Ali was sent to prison Joe campaigned for his release..." :no:

Wasn't that for a traffic violation? He never went to prison over Vietnam, which is what he was alluding to.

They don't have Black people in China so how can you blame them :rofl:.
It's kind of like an article here in Sweden were they had a picture of Joe's KD on Muhammed Ali and wrote " Joe frazier knocking Muhammed Ali out " in the description :nonono:.
****ing Idiot reporter couldn't even research the fight the picture came from.

I remember that fight. Foreman was really tough that night.

Here's a more recent picture of him:
