I'd pick prime Foreman over either Klitschko. He's the creation of all Wladimirs worst nightmares and probably too much for Vitali too. Still it's nice to see an old time fighter giving the new generation some credit, they are good fighters and people go over the top with how bad the era is to belittle their accomplishments.

Im surprised he said that, didn't he openly talk about wanting to come back at 55 and fight Vitali cause he didn't think the brothers were good?

The klitschko haters were all over the thread about Foreman wanting to make a come back. They took it to mean he seen the Klitschkos as weak (tho he never said that)
Now the haters either wont post on this thread or say Foreman's lying!

I never heard Foreman say Leon Spinks would beat Him or any other heavyweight outside of Lewis and now the Klitschkos

Some of George's nice guy routine is put-upon character acting, but I think he really is a nice guy, at heart, just shrewd enough to lay it on thick when it's to his advantage, and often says stuff like this because he wants to stick up for somebody. He probably just likes Klitschko, thinks he's quality, maybe saw him getting a bad rap.

Everyone's pretty much ALWAYS seen Vit as a great HW, a step above Wlad. This didn't just start because of Adamek. Anyone who can take that goddam nuclear bomb of an uppercut from Lennoix Lewis that Vit took and still keep fighting back is someone to be reckoned with.

George also said, and you can find it on youtube, that Vlad would leave no legacy in boxing because he was too cautious. I love George, but he likes to talk, you know.

George shouldn't do himself such disservice. I some how doubt the nice guy Klitschkos will be doing the same in years to come.

I genuinely can't see either of them coming out and saying someone would have beat me in years to come, even as nice as they proclaim to be. Vitali is still struggling with actually being beat by Lewis to this day.

Vitali is heavyweight champ curently in my eyes. His little brother is not.
