Slugfest – George Foreman v Ron Lyle

Remember the epic slugfest finale in the film Rocky II between Apollo Creed and Rocky Balboa?

Well George Foreman against Ron Lyle was the real thing back in 1976.   The aura of invincibility that George Foreman had was shattered by his defeat to Muhammad Ali in “The Rumble in the Jungle” in 1974.

Throughout 1975, Foreman remained inactive until returning to the ring against the dangerous puncher Ron Lyle.

This was a dream match-up between two heavy punchers that was only going to guarantee one outcome which was a knockout!
