Default Re: Fantasy match up- Fedor Vs George Foreman

Big George has 81 fights and 15 first round KOs. Of those first round KOs (against a lot of, but not all, chumps) 12 have times recorded in boxrec.

The average time for a George Foreman first round KO is about 2 minutes at 12 seconds or so. Given this, even if the fight starts close, there is little reason to think Foreman KOs fedor standing quickly, before Fedor gets the takedown. Of his fights, he only gets a first round KO 18.5% of the time and of that 18.5% it takes an average of over 2 minutes to get the KO.

Boxers aren't super people.
