Ali fought him in a Expo Match
Lyle did better than Conor.
Didn't he die to heavy steroid use?
Ali did it of those exhibitions. Ali looked pretty dead by the end.
Its alzado bro not "alzoni"...
His dad was a streetfighter
He was a hell of an athlete
Had a hell of an attitude
And yes he was roided to the gills
...Dude probably would have been a beast in MMA
He died of brain cancer which he blamed on steroid use. No study has ever linked the two.
Lyle was a bad dude. He was the construction worker operating the bulldozer in the movie Ernest Goes To Camp. He kicked Ernest's ass in front of the camp kids.
Ali was half-dead and wasn't even taking it seriously, Alzado thought he was in a title fight.
If you’re a fan of the Ernest movies. I remeber an old porn called Ernest fucks butts.
A level athlete?
Yeah, both though. Well, not so much either at that age. Both still had some speed for big men but weren't in good shape as you can see.
By "remember" you mean "starred in."
Ali, back when he was a sixteen year old clay once went to beat up on a soon to be lightheavyweight champ of the world willie pastrano in sparring just for kicks, he claims to have whooped archie moore's butt when he was his trainer too, and there were witnesses for him making a fool out of Ingemar Johansen before one of the patterson fights. Just the fact that alzado was even hitting him tells you how much age, loss of enthusiasm, skill, endurance does to a great fighter. Alzado was a golden glove champ but that means nothing at the top level of pro boxing. Ali was at a stage where anyone was making him look bad, they say when he was training for Holmes that every sparring partner beat on him.
from what i've read, alzado was bi and the brain cancer he had was one of the oppurtunistic illnesses that effect aids patients, i don't know if that's true but there isn't any proof that steroids cause brain cancer either. usually, roids cause heart and liver problems don't they?
also, interesting backstory about alzado putting up his house to pay for the event and he lost out somehow, paying ali I guess. pretty sad life for the guy.https://www.denverpost.com/2016/06/04/when-muhammad-ali-fought-broncos-lyle-alzado-in-denver/
Even a welterweight Hearns was tooling him.
ya, I saw that, even staggered him that was before the berbick fight. fucked up that his own inventions and moves were being used against him by other fighters.
