He said I hurt him. But with George, when you hurt him it just made him mad! But he never knocked me out. I was stuck on the ropes, I guess taking too many punches, but I was still throwing back. Anyway, I have footage of the fight as my wife recorded it. I have most of my fights on record. At the time I never thought Foreman would be able to win back the world title. But, yeah, he did it. He could really take a punch, as he showed in the Holyfield fight and against Tommy Morrison. I had about a week’s notice to fight Foreman, as usual, but I’m glad I took the fight. I hit him with some good shots.
