Well he was. Frazier didn't have the strength to wear Foreman down early on, his only chance would be to go into the later rounds, and that just wasn't going to happen.

if george never lost that fight to ali he may have retired the best ever. he was that good, that loss played with georges head for years after it happened.

He despises Tyson, when they fought Tyson refused to shake Larry's hand before the fight. He respects Ali, Frazier, and Cooney. He didn't get along with Norton. He's friends with Cooney now. But he doesn't talk about the other boxers, I got my info on his autobiography called Against the Odds it is very good, I recomend you get it.

i remember a holmes interview when he said he felt sad having to beat ali because he was old and he respected what he had done.
