Foreman says he might have been drugged before The Rumble In The Jungle
 
[url=http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/boxing/news/story?id=2878507]ESPN.com: Foreman: I was drugged before 'Rumble' with Ali[/url]

I don't know if this is true, but I would hate to find out that it was. The fight happened well before I was born but I've seen it on ESPN Classic about 300 times, so I'd be so disappointed if I found out there was shadiness afoot (that's right I said 'afoot').

I've heard that some people think the fight was fixed, saying that the punch that KO'd Foremen never actually connected, but I don't buy that.

Boxing is basically all shadiness and has been since the 70's really.

cant anyone just lose because they weren't good enough? foreman was a helluva puncher, but not to smart in the ring. up to that fight, he just mowed everyone down. kind of like a young Mike Tyson. i wanted him to beat Ali, but Ali was just too good

I might have been better to have voiced this accusation 30 years ago.

I saw an interview about this.

George was just saying someone offered him some water and he drank it. Then he said it tasted funny and said "Is there medicine in this water? I don't want medicine in my water!"

:cheeky-sm

This fight took place outside in the middle of Africa, and even though it started at 5am it was as hot as, well, Africa there. Even though Foreman had been training there for some time before the fight his body just wasn't used to the heat; combine that with Ali's rope-a-dope tactic and he pretty much just beat himself.

Ha, I'm reading the wiki page on the fight and I just came across this quote:
[QUOTE]Foreman later claimed that Ali's trainers had loosened up the ropes to benefit Ali, but he apologized for those comments after the fight.[citation needed] He produced a number of excuses over the years to explain his loss. Foreman even suggested that he may have been drugged by his own corner before the fight, and claimed in his memoir God in My Corner that he could taste something medicinal in his water.[/QUOTE]

Dmek was right on. He played right into Ali's hands and lost, enough said!

Seeing that it contains the word "cat" and "sausage", I bet you'll regret saying that.
