FANTASY FIGHTS
- Head to Head -
....................................................................................................

This is where we pit two past prime fighters against eachother and see who picks who to win, and who comes out the victor.

All matchups are open to vote by anyone who has placed a pick for the league this year. The voting never stops so if two months from now you place a pick for a matchup we already did, just quote the matchup and cast your vote and I will get it added.

This is not who has a better legacy, but who would in a fight between the two, the majority of the time.

Now, lets pit the best vs the best and see whos left standing when the dust settles.

....................................................................................................


For the second matchup, a young, prime Vitali Klitschko goes up against a young, undefeated George Foreman. Pitting the iron chinned giant vs the power punching bull. Who wins? You decide.

* DANS BREAKDOWN *
Two super heavyweights in their prime and I think this would be a very fun to watch because it is highly intriguing with a lot of question marks as well. Foreman a devastating power puncher vs Klitschko a tough, awkward, fighter. Dissecting what Foreman was all about was he was very intimidating and a bully. I don't think any of this would affect Klitschko. Who is just a big bully as well. As mentioned earlier, Foreman had brutal power, but Vitali Klitschko has a very strong jaw. Foreman didn't have good stamina. In his prime, he would get you out early, and if he couldn't he would tire out. Vitali Klitschko has great stamina and when you factor in his output for a big man like he it is outstanding! Then we go over to Vitali's side. He is a man that has barely lost a couple handful of rounds in his career, but at the same time...who has he fought? He really hasn't been fully tested and really pushed. It only, unfortunately, has happened 1 time and that was a loss to Lennox Lewis. But, he was up in the fight and was stopped on cuts. If he doesn't get that cut, he may pass that test with flying colors, but then again, it was against a faded ATG in Lennox Lewis who was a bit out of shape. So, basically, what I'm getting at it is tough to really say how Vitali Klitschko stacks up head to head with some of the all-time greats, like Foreman, because he is definitely thee most unproven all-time Heavyweight. Alongside his brother, Wladimir. So, really going over this fight I got to think Foreman has a good chance, but if he doesn't get Vitali Klitschko out of there after 4 or 5 rounds I feel that Vitali Klitschko slowly starts to dominate and really put it on Foreman in the middle to late rounds. And with that I think he beats Foreman by decision and may'be knocks him out, but I think the safe bet is Vitali Klitschko via UD.
