‘Big George’ climbed up from the ropes to deliver a Haymaker of his own to end proceedings and make the final four of the World Boxing Super Series.
Haye got off to a sluggish start and it was nearly over by the time we blinked with the former two-weight champion on the floor. Not only did he pick up the pieces, he landed a huge right to send Foreman into a world of trouble.
“Best fight so far!” said Kalle Sauerland, Chief Boxing Officer of the eWBSS. “Both men down, Hayemaker so close to the upset but ended with a trademark Big George finish.”
Watch the fight here.
