Re: George Foreman vs Vitali Klitschko
It is hilarious how some people here go with "Vitali never fought someone like Foreman, so he will lose!" "Today's boxers are all weak compared to the old ones" "Vitali quit against Byrd, so he loses to Foreman" "Klitschko brothers would never defeat one of the old boxers" etc etc etc.
Boxing evolves, everything does, nothing goes back. Boxers now are generally better than boxers from the past, it's damn natural, it will always be that way. It's just that some people are too stupid, too ignorant or too nostalgic to accept the truth.
What do you get by convincing yourself in something which is absurd? I've even seen a thread "Dempsey vs Wladimir", I don't know if some people really think that boxers from 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s etc would be able to compete with present boxers, but the comparison looks silly from a realistic side of view.
People in all sports only get better and better. Can you imagine sprinter from 30s competing with Usain Bolt? Some swimmer from 50s winning against Michael Phelps? Pole Vault woman from 80s against Yelena Isinbayeva? Basketball player from 70s competing with LeBron James? Hell no. It is just people who can't accept the truth for some reason (hatred towards Eastern-European boxers being a good example). So yeah, all of you claiming this nonsense can continue being ignorant and look extremely stupid to any reasonable person.
