Best Comeback In History.
Theres been a few dramatic comebacks in boxing history. In my humble opinion Ali's comeback is probably the most dramatic. Your thoughts, list some of your best comebacks in boxing history.
Muhammad Ali beats Foreman for Heavyweight Championship of the World- this was after the title was wrongfully stripped from Ali seven years earlier. In 1967 he wasnt allowed to fight for 3 years. So when he came back in 1970 or 71 he had to get the title back from Frazier-he lost-after that he had to fight his way back up to contension losing for a second time to Norton and winning some on the way up. So finally in 1974 a 32 year old Ali finally gets a shot at the title against an undefeated young wrecking machine that was 42-0 by the name of George Foreman. The ring had not seen such a fearsome villian as Foreman since Liston and many gave Ali little chance to win he was a huge underdog going into the fight. This is the famous fight where Ali rope a doped Foreman till Foreman was tired and knocking him out in round 8.
here are a few others that I have seen in my life that are very dramatic also.
-Foreman wins heavyweight title at the age of 45 and becomes oldest man to ever win heavywieght title after being retired for ten years. Foreman changed during his ten year retirement from boxing, from being a villian when he was young to the big lovable giant we know him as now.
-Duran beats Iran Barkley for the Super Middleweight title after many wrote Duran off into has been status.
-Sugar Ray coming back to win the Middleweight Title against Hagler after retirement from damaged retina
I'm sure theres more so fill me in.....
