Pugilistic Classics, Episode 5: Sizzling on George Foreman's Grill
The Fight Site Podcast Network
Revisit the Pugilistic Classics with Dan Albert! This week Dan is joined by HaXxorIzed and Iggy to commentate and geek out as they watch young Big George Foreman SMASH other big huge guys with his MASSIVE FISTS in the FACE. Watch along as the boys go nuts over Foreman's demolition jobs, those being: Joe Frazier vs. George Foreman I, George Foreman vs. Ken Norton, and of course the classic back-and-forth insanity that was George Foreman vs. Ron Lyle, the man-fridge himself. Dan, Iggy and Haxx do their best to emphasise Foreman's underrated craft and technical skill that have allowed him to become the wrecking machine he's remembered as, but also just sit back and enjoy the sight of the big man rattling people's skulls with gigantic blows until they fall over completely unconscious.Follow Dan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TypeWritingDAFollow HaXx on Twitter: https://twitter.com/HaXxorizedFollow Iggy on Twitter: https://twitter.com/chunguskhan03Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/FightSitedotcom Check out our written content on the website: https://www.thefight-site.com/ Support us directly on Patreon for exclusive content and access to the discord: https://www.patreon.com/fightsiteWe now have exclusive merchandise at teespring.com/stores/the-fight-site-shop

Most sports fans are at least aware of the 'The Rumble in the Jungle.' The epic heavyweight fight between George Foreman and Muhammad Ali took place in Kinshasa, Zaire on October 30, 1974 and is widely considered to be one of the most iconic sporting the events the world has ever seen. The young Foreman was a 4-1 favorite over the cagey veteran Ali, and the fight that would ensue would be one of the more legendary bouts in boxing history. Another key aspect of the fight was that this was a great time in boxing history with Ali, Foreman and Joe Frazier all fighting each other in epic bouts. You might remember some of those like the 'Fight of the Century' Ali/Frazier 1 and of course the 'Thrilla in Manila' which would happen after this fight, and the 3rd installment of the Ali/Frazier trilogy. What also made this fight unique was the against-the-grain strategy Ali used to tactically beat Foreman. That strategy would become known as the rope-a-dope. Couple that with an amazing environment in 20th of May Stadium and you had one for the ages. In this episode we discuss: The heavyweight division in the 60s and 70s and the epic battles between Ali, Frazier, and Foreman. Don King arranging the fight with the help of dictators Libyan dictator Gaddafi's role in the bout The fight being delayed a month and the impact that had The record number of people that watched Announcing crew featuring Jim Brown Muhammad Ali’s post fight interview with David Frost Complete Rumble in the Jungle fight breakdown Ali bomaye and the crowd being pro Ali We'll talk all of that and much more as we relive a classic.
