BIG GEORGE'S TITLE DEFENSE COULD COME IN THE GARDEN
Published November 22, 1994
"Madison Square Garden, out of the boxing business for more than 18 months, would like to return to boxing in a big way -- with George Foreman's first title defense." MSG President Dave Checketts "floated" the idea to Seth Abraham, President of Time Warner Sports. But Bob Arum, Foreman's promoter, quickly shot down the deal: "George is not going to subject himself to the 11% state and city taxes you have to pay to fight in New York." But Checketts still hopes to land Foreman: "The crowd treats it like a big event and I know George loves New York" (N.Y. POST, 11/22). Abraham said the Astrodome or Superdome are "more appealing" to Foreman (Richard Sandomir, N.Y. TIMES, 11/22).
