George Foreman Drops Thoroughly Foremanesque Quote About Max Baer
Airing on National Geographic in 2005, Cinderella Man: The Real Jim Braddock Story, was a great documentary, with guests like Ron Lipton and George Foreman. George Foreman described Max Baer, Braddock's legendary obstacle, with the following quote:
"Max Baer was the most famous heavyweight-probably the most skillful heavyweight champion of all time. If you watch Muhammad Ali, some of his footwork, speed, this originated with Max Baer. "
As much as I love both George and Maxie, this is one of those Big Papa G quotes that leaves me pondering how to get from where I am to where he is. God love him, he surely does know how to praise his fellow athlete.
