Get real. McCall sparked an undefeated champ who would go on to be arguably a top 5 heavy of all time, definitely top 10. Foreman sparked an undefeated champ who went on to obscurity. A win over Moorer is good, but in no way comparable to beating Lennox. I can't imagine how worshipped Foreman would be if he accomplished what McCall did. Actually, I can; it would be disgusting.

The rest of McCall's 90s resume is at worst comparable to Foreman's, but really it's a little better. Neither are great.
