Shavers, Quarry and Lyle all fall to him.

I say he goes unbeaten into a title shot around 72 where he loses to Frazier. He regroups gets a title shot against Ali in his first fight after Thriller and wins on points. Loses to Young who loses to Norton who loses to Vitali who keeps the belt until about 79 when Holmes beats him in a rematch, then he goes on to be just some belt holder fighting cans.
If he were severely dehydrated like Foreman was, yes.
