The Ali of the Berbick fight was much better. I give him a good chance of beating Foreman, and hanging in the top ten of the 90's. Too bad he decided to retire.

Are you serious? Foreman by mid-late round KO.

He would have whipped a lot of people. He was very determined that night, in good shape, and well prepared... but Holyfield was even better.

Well don't laugh too hard... I don't think old Foreman could beat the Ali that beat young Foreman but in many way the old Foreman was better than the young Foreman. Old Foreman (who peaked vs. Holyfield and declined shortly after) stuck to his fight plan better, was more relaxed, did not waste energy, and was bigger and actually stronger. His jab was very good and harder. He was kinda slow but so was young Foreman. He had less snap on his punches but still punched very hard. His hook was better when he was younger.

Old vs. young Foreman? It's a toss up IMO.

Young George batters a brave strong old George to a stoppage win by the end of the sixth.

I pick 70s Foreman, although I agree with the points made. George was one of a kind.
