Big Stong Heavyweight; Ron Lyle

Big,strong Ron Lyle was a heavyweight who fought during  the talent rich 1970′s.  He was a main stream contender for nearly a decade.  He  fought “The Greatest”,Muhammad Ali for the title and more then held his own until being  stopped in round eleven.  He had “Big” George Foreman on the canvas twice before  succumbing to George’s power in probably one of the best heavyweight battles of all time.  His all action shoot out with Earnie Shavers would be a  strong runner up to his bout with Foreman.
