In 1994, Forman knocked out Michael Moorer to win the IBF heavyweight
The fight took place on November 5 in Las Vegas, with Foreman wearing the
same red trunks he had worn in his title loss to Ali 20 years earlier. For
nine rounds, Moorer easily outboxed him, hitting and moving away, while
Foreman chugged forward, seemingly unable to "pull the trigger" on his
punches. Entering the tenth round, Foreman was trailing on all scorecards.
Then, suddenly, a short right hand caught Moorer on the tip of his chin,
gashing open his bottom lip, and he collapsed to the canvas. He lay flat on
his back as the referee counted him out.

In an instant, Foreman had regained the title he had lost to Muhammad Ali
two decades before. With this historic victory, Foreman broke two records:
he became, at age 45, the oldest fighter ever to win the world heavyweight
crown; and, 20 years after losing his title for the first time, he broke the
record for the fighter with the longest interval between one world
championship and the next.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
