Dude I watched Moorer when he was coming up through the ranks. He tanked it.
I never said that he didn't take a hit, but he was far from hurting.
If you wanna see it for real, HBO had a special and it actually showed it from another angle then the overhead "Rocky III shot"
They have the camera to the mat and he makes a glance...it is there and it is obvious.
Now back to the fight. Moorer did nothing the whole time. Cocky my ass, he had Foreman every second of the fight. It was obvious that old ass was out classed. There was a time that Georgie actually stumbled to the side and Moorer did NOTHING.
I seen Moorer completely obliterate opponents that Foreman almost had end his career. Everett Martin and Alex Stewart(edited because of confusion with Axel Schultz.
) come to mind. These were people that Moorer knocked out with ease, while Foreman had alot more trouble.
Hey you guys wanna believe in fiction that is your fault, but me I have been a hardcore boxing fan for years. I know a fall when I see one. Moorer took a dive. He did it obviously. I remember seeing a interview where Foreman said he had it all "plannned out". Moorer got pissed and actually said it...BULL SH*T Foreman. You could tell he was mad for exactly the reason I said. He took the dive, and Foreman's "plan" was insulting.
"Knew it was over" my ass. Moorer has been hit alot harder then Foreman, and he got up to win the fight with a K.O. Moorere didn't even bother to try to get up. He just looked over and rolled his eyes. Take a look at seconds before. Moorer almost took a dive at an earlier shot. That sh*t was faked. I don't know who paid him, but what a f*cking fool!
Time and time again Moorer didn't take the fight to Foreman. He wasn't cocky, he was fighting like a person that didn't want to win. He was more then capable and I have seen his style. That night, he was obviously in a different place.
Pete...incidently, it wasn't his left that was dropped..it was both hands.
He set it up, cause he wanted it to be. Of course you got to make that look real.
Do I think Foreman can still hit, of course. But Moorer wasn't "played". He was an excellent fighter, and Foreman would not have taken him. Hell even when Foreman was in his prime his easier opponents at least tried to get up. Moorer was a survivor, but that night he didn't care. When you have a old man in the ring, the chances are much better for something being fixed. There is alot to gain from a legend recapturing the title because odds are stacked. Think about it.
