George Foreman, the International Boxing Federation's world heavyweight champion keeps his fearsome left fist well and truly under wraps as he speaks to reporters at a press conference in Las Vegas yesterday.

The 46-year-old is preparing to defend his title against Axel Schulz, of Germany, in the city tomorrow.

Foreman was stripped of the other version of the heavweight title he won when he beat Michael Moorer in November, after choosing to defend against the unheralded Schulz. The World Boxing Association, unimpressed by the German's credentials, refused to sanction the fight leaving Foreman with only one title.
