    Insane how much referring has changed in the years, I was shocked he let the match continue after that second standing 8 count. And then at the end, it looked like he still wanted to continue it, I thought he would’a called it over the second the guy was on the mat.

    He went down, went down again, and then immediately went down a third time- don’t give him a count and try get him back in, it’s over, spare him the damage.

    I can’t imagine what it was like growing up during this time and being able to experience Ali. His pre and post fight interviews steal the show

    I like how the guy doing the play-by-play says “Foreman is not a great boxer, but he’s a great puncher” – there is quite obviously more to what Foreman is doing here than just lining up a punch. He parries the jabs, corralls Norton, he’s not a bad boxer at all – he’s just using that to land his monster of a right, sure, but bad?
