Default Foreman vs Lyle, best HW fight ever????

I think so. Lyle would have knocked out Foreman but George was saved by the bell.

And I think the best round ever was Holmes / Norton 15th.

One of the best slugfest for sure, but I will always think Ali Frazier 1 is the best fight period. Another I'd rate over foreman Lyle match up is bowe holyfields first fight.

It was a great fight. Everytime you thought someone won, the other guy knocked him down.

Big George was saved by the bell. The round expired while he was on his face in a heap.

That fight had nothing to do with boxing, it was just a fight.

Lyle knocked down Foreman TWICE in that fight, and Foreman was in his prime.

#1 for me. Not a lot was at stake compared to the Ali-Frazier fights but man these guys just went out and scrapped!

Good luck with that one..they are just mere bums not worthy of a look in this section, they don't stack up like them other eras. didn't you know post 70's everyone stopped learning and became fat and out of shape not being able to go more than 12 rounds??????....lol....

Foreman was certainly in trouble,however Lyle would not have done that to 90's Foreman who took a better punch and picked his shots.
