George Foreman will be 66 in a few weeks.

His right jab still looks as mighty as it was when he was 25 in the defeat to Muhammad Ali. Or at 45 when he knocked out Michael Moorer.

The ferocious look has given way to a permanent grin but with boxing gloves hanging off his left shoulder, the conviction and poise remained.
  
“I won’t kill anyone with a punch,” he tells the interviewer at the Doha Goals Forum 2014 as he punches his left palm with his right fist, the impact amplified by the close presence of a microphone.

The best article you ever posted was that one about Naseem Hamed's career being fixed.  The one where the guy didn't understand the difference between amateur boxing and professional. :lol:
