Pretty amazing when you think back.
I myself have become guilty of underrating how amazing that successful comeback was. Coming back after so long with a polar opposite style. Even winning the Title in the same shorts he was wearing in 1974 no less
The Boxing God's were definitely looking down on George that night.
For guys like us, who saw both career's, it's just astonishing to me.
Become very underrated.
