SI Vault Podcast: George Foreman on Michael Moorer, facing Muhammad Ali

Friday October 16th, 2015

The SI Vault Podcast takes you through sports history with a dive into the archives of Sports Illustrated. Host Ted Keith speaks with legendary athletes as well as the writers who produced some of the most memorable pieces in the magazine’s 61-year history, and every week will include a reading of a classic SI story.

In this week's episode, host Ted Keith talks with former heavyweight champion George Foreman about winning back the title at the age of 45, taking on Michael Moorer in Las Vegas. Keith also talks with Foreman about facing Muhammad Ali, his relationship with him after their careers were over and Foreman's business ventures outside of the ring. As we approach the anniversary of Foreman's knockout of Moorer, Keith will also read Richard Hoffer's story, "KO'd," from the November 14, 1994​ issue of Sports Illustrated.
