Default I've Lost Some Respect For Ali..

Although I couldn't quite believe it, I've just found out Muhammad Ali was solely to blame for not giving George Foreman a rematch.. Apparently George chased him for nearly 3 years to no avail, because ALI REFUSED TO BUDGE..
I thought Ali gave everyone rematches... Why am I so wrong??

George Foreman lost to Jimmy Young, and was a sideshow after ali (fighting 3 men in 1 night).

If Ali did give him a rematch I dont see it going Foremans way again, the ropes will be loosend and it would be as crappy as the first match...maybe even crappier since george wouldnt fall for it.

That's bollocks.. Foreman had 5 KO victories before losing to Young, including Lyle & Frazier.. The 'Freak show' was a one off, in order to tempt Ali, and it was 4 bums as opposed to 3.. I still say that Ali avoided him, & Young had nothing to do with it..

Well if you were Ali would you want to jump in the ring with that beast again? lol

By The way it was 5 men in 1 night, i have it on tape. =)

Ali out fought George in Africa, He couldnt pull it off a second time i dont think, but then again George wasnt the same. But i know where your coming from, I have done alot of reading on Ali, and he has disapointed me more then once. But thats my opinion

I never understood why there wasn’t an immediate rematch in the States.

I've always felt that "The Champion" that loses his title should have the option to get an immediate rematch or at least a rematch within 1 full year time.

Foreman fought stupid in that fight and hadn't properly used his jab since Frazier leading up to the Ali fight.
