George Foreman vs. Ken Lakusta, After a ten-year layoff, ‘Big’ George Foreman made his much-publicized return to the boxing ring in March of 1987. Despite the critics saying he was too old to make a serious run at another World Championship, Foreman began rattling off a string of victories that ultimately had the world taking notice. Foreman had won 22 straight since his return, including a much-hyped win over Gerry Cooney, and in this bout, he continues his campaign towards a Heavyweight Championship super fight with Evander Holyfield by travelling up to Canada to face Canadian Heavyweight Champion Ken Lakusta. In what was supposed to be an easy victory, Lakusta nearly shocked the world by letting Foreman know this was not just another tune up fight.
