What top contenders could you imagine the old incarnations of Foreman and Holmes beating in the seventies ? I can't see them doing anything but lose against -
Young George Foreman
Young Larry Holmes
Maybe they'd have a shot against Ron Lyle,Jerry Quarry and Earnie Shavers,but I can's say with any degree of certainty.
