Worked with those two, never fought them. Experienced rounds with Rid**** young, Ollie old.

Prime Bowe would have worked George, but not in a war. George wouldn't have made it a war, Rid**** would have just stepped off and around. He'd have hit paydirt shifting to the right and popping up the uppercut. But he wouldn't have backed George up with any consistency. He didn't drive with his legs very well, first of all, and he'd have been outjabbed at a distance, which makes it hard to consistently control the center. He'd have won with his own spin on how Holyfield did.

George was much, much stronger than Oliver McCall- He'd have backed him up easily. It's not just about eating shots and smiling, which is pretty much all McCall could do against the absolute best in the division, it's about the shoving, the bumping, the pushing, the moving. George beats the tar out of Oliver in a war, and wins a decisive decision. Probably 8-4.

You go around George, not through him
