For the young Foreman, LL was 10 times deadlier than Ron Lyle

Either guy can win this by knockout which makes it hard to pick. They have to both concentrate and not get careless. I think Lennox would land his big right and drop George and stop him in about 4 rounds. Either Foreman old or young.

We all know what a prime Foreman was capable of. Based on raw power and strength,there was nobody who could touch him. Lewis had the wherewithall to beat him,but he would have had to have been patient and box cautiously for the first five rounds or so,and rely on George to gas out after the halfway mark. If Lennox comes out with all guns blazing,a la the Ruddock and Golota fights,George outguns him.

Only if he hits him first. If Lewis got in a combination the way he did against Ruddock, George isn't getting up.

Lewis clearly saw openings which is why he was so aggressive in those fights

I don't think he would try and bang with Foreman, even Lewis knows he would lose that kind of fight

I wouldn't be surprised if Lewis bombed him out in under 5. The openings are there and he tended to do that to larger fighters.
