Default George Foreman vs Ron Lyle

I had heard about this fight and read about what a great slugfest it was but until last night I had never seen it. All I got to say is WOW. What an exciting brawl. Two big powerful sluggers trying to decapitate on another. The funny thing is, Lyle came out in the 1st round trying to outbox big George, and was actually doing it quite easily. Had he stuck to that instead of fighting Foremans fight he probably would`ve beat him. Foreman would later say that Ron Lyle hit harder than any other man he ever faced.

** Yeah, hadn't see it in a while, so thanks for the refresher. However, George boxes well for the first 3.5 rounds. Then he hurts Lyle as George starts to tire a bit and is hurt back and the bout spirals into a slugfest. Lyle never gets enough credit for his excellent showing against George and Ali who got a gift over Lyle.

Nice to hear a sharp Norton offset Howie who always filled his shorts anytime anything exciting happened or not.

Ron Lyle won. But Shavers knocked him down though, but Lyle came back and stopped Shavers.

Foreman looked really weird in that Lyle fight. He didn't have the same reckless aggressiveness that he had prior to the Rumble in the Junge. You can tell how the Ali fight really affected him.
