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

Bowe had one big weakness he wasn't as tough as his size suggested Lewis beat the crap out of him at the Olympics and Golota destroyed Bowe with some good old fashioned thuggery.

In 92 Bowe had beaten Holyfield but nobody else who really hit him back hard. The pattern of this fight would be set by Bowe's reaction to the first of Foreman's bombs that landed. If Foreman hurts him then Bowe would run making it a very different fight that George would find hard to win as Bowe endeavoured to keep him at long range.

If Bowe absorbs Foreman's power early and moves inside then George would have a decent chance of breaking Bowe up.
