Default Re: George Foreman(1991) vs. Riddick Bowe(1992)

I think George would jab his way to a decision win in this one. Bowe was really a big infighter. Foreman wouldn't have allowed him inside. George repeatedly shoved steroid inflated Tommy Morrison to the outside like a rag doll. George's jab connected more often than not, at this stage of his career, and Bowe was a huge target.

Not only would Foreman have been stronger physically, but he would have been the shorter man in this one, with the lower center of gravity. Against Cooney, he showed he could be perfectly comfortable filling this unusual role. His cross armed defense would have afforded him more protection than usual. Bowe would be in an unfamiliar position of being forced to give ground.

Most of the excitement in this one would have been over the potential for an abrupt ending at any time, but at the end, it would have been a fairly pedantic points win for the lumbering oldster, moving incessantly forward behind his reincarnated jab.
