Foreman found a style with Archie Moore that worked so well for him. The cross arm defence when your 6foot 4 with 20inch arms and massive power are a serious proposition for anyone.

Because Foreman is a legend, the 90's heavyweight era is very overrated. 70's era of heavyweights was the best era

In terms of Foreman himself, he still carried power, Throughout the 80s and 90s he could still punch and punch damn hard. No one felt comfortable trading with him. Holy made it through on grit, age and a great chin. Moorer couldnt.
Moorer took a dive plain and simple.

AJ, Wilder, Parker and probably Fury will fight each other soon. AJ fought Klitschko and that was a great fight.
