George Foreman Regains Title at 45 George Foreman was an intimidating bruiser when he won the world heavyweight title by demolishing Joe Frazier in 1973. He surprisingly lost the crown to Muhammad Ali in Zaire in 1974. By 1977 Foreman was out of boxing and was making a living preaching in Texas. With funds getting a little low, Foreman made what many fans thought was a crazy comeback in 1987 at age 38. Much slower than he had been in his prime, Foreman could still hit with great power, though. Now a fan favorite because of his new likable persona, Foreman had a series of comeback wins. He lost a title try to Evander Holyfield in 1991 at age 42. Three years later he was given another shot against new champion Michael Moorer. Trailing badly on the scorecards entering the tenth round, the 45-year-old Foreman shocked the world with an historic knockout blow, as this clip shows. Listen to Jim Lampley's succinct call: "It happened! It happened!" Also listen to the excited, joyous cheering of the pro-Foreman crowd when Moorer hits the deck. It ranks as one of the magical moments in sports history.

Foreman-Lyle Fight 1976 Many boxing fans consider the 1976 heavyweight fight between George Foreman and Ron Lyle as the most exciting boxing match ever shown on television. I've been following boxing for more than 40 years and it's hard to think of a wilder bout! This was a crossroads fight for both men. Foreman hadn't fought since losing the world heavyweight title to Muhammad Ali in Zaire in October 1974. Lyle had lost to Ali in May 1975. A loss would be a major setback to either man's quest to get another crack at Ali. The fight lasted five rounds, but this video condenses the topsy-turvy events to about six minutes. Howard Cosell and Ken Norton describe the brawl.
