Remember back when boxing could be seen over the air on TV? It’s been a long time, hasn’t it?
This fight took place on January 24, 1976 in Las Vegas. George Foreman you all know about. Ron Lyle probably would have been a champion in another era, just happened to be in the wrong era with great heavyweight fighters like Foreman, Ken Norton, Joe Frazier, and Muhammad Ali.
Another great man commentated on the fight and gave it all the drama it was due in Howard Cosell. Let me just throw in one tip: the fourth round of this fight was one of the greatest rounds I have ever seen with all the sudden changes in momentum, almost changing with every punch.
