How old was George Foreman when he won his world championship bout against Michael Moorer?

  1. 25
  2. 35
  3. 45
  4. 55
Correct!

George Foreman was 45 years old when he reclaimed the title of heavyweight world champion, which he had lost to Muhammad Ali a full two decades earlier. His opponent in the 1994 bout, Michael Moorer, was 19 years younger than him, and for the first nine rounds of the match, Moorer outperformed him in every category. Suddenly, in the tenth round, Foreman began slugging his opponent with a brute force that caught the young boxer completely off guard and eventually knocked him out. Foreman had defied the odds to become the oldest boxer to win the heavyweight crown.
