  1. enough of tyson...how about ali?
    ali is very popular today and has been for awhile, but back in the lat 60's early 70's ali was much hated for his stance on the war in vietnam[got a deferment], taking a muslim name, and his support of radical groups like the black panthers. foreman was in effect the great white hope to bring down ali, much of white america hated ali during this time. foreman went on all the talk shows talking about suits he had tailored because his arms were too big, big george was a monster....remember that foreman was the heavy favorite to beat ali and most sport reporters mostly all white were all pulling for george. howard cossell built his carrer around his backing of ali when it was clearly unpopular to do so.

    even those who hated ali have to admire the man, he backed up the talk....and ali did a lot of talking, lol.

  2. Foreman is a HUGE guy. I've meet him a bunch of time and his hands are as big as dinner plates. Silly really.

    Between the war and integration there was always gonna be some heated times back then. The media just found a channel for it with those two fighters.

    as popular as ali is today, he was pretty controversial back in the day. but like i said... have to give ali credit, when all was said and done he backed it up!!!

    george is just the kind of guy you want to hang out with, lol....but not piss off!!!
    WELL DONE IS BETTER THAN WELL SAID

  4. Foreman said that his loss to Ali haunted him for many years. Ali imo was the type of fighter you would never want to bet against. A lot of people hated his cockiness but I thought it was genius, because he could back it up.
    Life's a garden, dig it

  5. If you listen to that fight you can hear Ali's corner calling for the ropes to be loosened. Tricky jerk.

    ali wouldn't give george a rematch, though.....at least ali didn't duck fighters the way guys like merriweather do today!!!

    the sweet science...
    when i was in the navy back in the 70's i was on a carrier...every fri night they would have smokers. anybody who had a beef could challenge to a smoker. a smoker was a ring set up on the hanger bay, had gloves, ref a bell everything....much better way to settle differences than with guns...you don't have to be all that manly to pull a trigger, imo...

    i think gangs need to have smokers, lol.


    and with that i am out...gotta get some sleep before work tonight, enjoy!!!

    That sounds awesome. I'm not old enough to have experienced and appreciate boxing in its glory days. I agree though it takes a man to fist fight fairly. Anyone can shoot a gun. It's the reason behind the action.


    Oh yeah, I think I'd love g8 too because I have slept like crap lately. Premed+PLing sucks.

    Nope, but he dodged a draft. I have no respect for Ali, whatsoever.

    good point, and a stance to be expected from a diehard military man

    Yeah, that was the perfect distance to execute that kind of slap. He has his whole body as leverage.

    indeed...one of many reasons ali was so hated by many. ali gets nothing but good press in this 'age of enlightment', most of the youngsters probably aren't even aware of ali's true past. over the years i have been able to seperate the things i disliked about the man from what he accomplished in the ring.

    We're aware. Wait, what constitutes youngsters in this context?

    I can name a lot of professional athletes that answered the call to arms, lived to tell the tale, and resumed their careers as professional athletes. Although he was an amazing athlete and fighter, his attitude was piss poor to put it mildly. He could talk a great game, but in all truth, he was a coward. Cassius Clay is a mockery of what an American icon should be.
    Joe DiMaggio (who demanded combat duty), Stan Musial, Ted Williams, Warren Spahn and hundreds of others served, why couldn't Ali. I don't wish physical ailments upon anyone, but Ali suffers now like he should, shuttering and drooling on himself.
    Sorry, end rant.

    i used to listen to ali fights on the radio rooting for everybody who fought him to shut him up.....i have no love for ali.

    the sad part about is he probably would have been 'protected' and assigned duty far from danger, much like elvis.....

    i agree, much respect for those you mentioned...but ww2 was a whole different breed of cat than nam was...we even have presidents who got deferments from nam-bush jr and clinton. probably obama too, but not sure he was even a u.s citizen back then.

    Broadcasters back then had to possess real talent. Painting a picture with words is difficult, but to be able to do it at the pace of an Ali fight, geez. I turn the sound off to watch baseball anymore.

    back in the days of ali pay for view was just starting out, it was like $100 to sit in a stadium and watch a not so clear, not so big screen tv...most of america listened to ali fights on the radio, howard cossell made his name doing ali fights on the radio.

    I think that's what helped make HBO boxing such a big hit was Jim Lampley and Larry Merchant and their ability to call a fight. Same is true imo for Goldberg and Rogan calling UFC fights. Granted it's not radio but still exciting

    good point... but being able to sit in your living room chugging beers and watching championship quality boxing, or at a bar.. probably had a lot to do with hbo boxing's success. until then mostly all tv boxing was abc's wide world of sports, and it was mostly all taped or amateur.
