For guys like us, who saw both career's, it's just astonishing to me.

Become very underrated.
I'm sure you remember (at the beginning of his comenack) that most people were either worried about George or taking him as a joke. Fighting regularly at that age was unheard of.

I remember seeing an interview with Michael Dokes then. The announcer asked him whether Foreman should be allowed to fight. Dokes said "if you take away George's license, what are you going to do about all the guys he was beating?"
