Really, too many excuses are made for Foreman. Clancy, did say George was mentally broken. But he kinda revealed how easy it was to break George. Foreman always seemed to struggled with slippery opponents (peralta). It's likely even if he beats Holmes once, they'd meat again and Holmes would pull it out.

Shavers and Cooney weren't Foreman, but Holmes clearly showed his whiskers and ability to drag big punchers into deep waters. So while I concede he'll pay a greater price than Ali and Young, he too - eventually - gets his hand raised as they did.

Here's the best ever that Lar who was still skinny then fought on the under-under-undercard when George and Young scrapped.

Words and records tend to fail with you, but there it is with you and Lar revealed in all your naked doltary.
