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.

Boxing writer Red Smith brilliantly called the Foreman-Lyle contest 'the most two-sided fight' he had ever seen.

Nobody was asking for a refund.

not a boxing match - instead, a total slugfest

one for the ages!
