foreman knocked him out. period. moorer isn't even a great boxer, while foreman is the heaviest hitter ever.

yes at one time forman was a great hitter, when he was young but the poor man could hardly move round the ring in his second term no wonder he boughht out a grilling machine ,preferably to use on himself , which he needed at the time, moorer was not the best boxer ever i agree but to lose to a old fat forman just looked like a dive to me i afraid

it was not a dive. it was a hard hit to the chin that needed four stiches after the fight, so how could that be a dive.

Take any fight in the history of boxing, there is a chance it was fixed. The Italian and Russian mob have fixed a ton of fights, promoters have as well, and fighters. It's a yearly multi-billion dollar business. I read an article of a former Italian mob boss that said he made hundred of miliions of dollars fixing a Duran fight. Boxing is extremely corrupt, but hey, most sports are as well.

****, even if it was fixed, I would give Foreman credit for even competing for the heavyweight championship when he was 45.
