Default George Foreman best bareknuckle fighter ever ?

His style is perfect for it and not to mention he could hit a hard as he possibly could because he wouldn't have to worry about his wrists breaking as he said he hit guys high on the head a lot and knocked them out and nothing happened to his wrists so his power would be there, just thought of this for some weird reason, would anybody be able to beat him in a bare knuckle fight ? (This is a prime Foreman)

he would have been runied after a few fights due to his wild swings hitting guys on the top of the head...hands would have broken to bits..and he would have been done.

Would expect great bare knuckle champions of the past would have a shot since that was the way they fought all the time.

Hell no. Wide swings, poor form, average hand speed, no head movement, no defense.

However Foreman was a beast. Make no mistake. He was a human wrecking ball in his prime. Great chin, durable, tremendous will to win and killer instinct. Ko power in every punch and a telephone pole jab. Physically possibly the strongest hwt champion he was a force of nature in the ring with deceptively quick hands and a great ability to cut the ring off on a retreating opponent. The night he fought Norton as well as Ali not many fighters in boxing history could have stood up to him.

This was exactly my thought before even clicking on the thread.

Could anybody have beaten him though ??

With his tremendous power he would have just pushed around guys he was more of a street fighter than a boxer in his prime and i don't think many people would have a chance to beat him.

Bullshit. You really should be ashamed of yourself, you disgraceful nuthugger. A grown man talking like this... "Human wrecking ball...!" Nope. Gregorio Peralta knew better. Peralta took Foreman's best shots without wincing. Where was the "KO power in every punch" against former light heavyweight Peralta?

John L and Tyson would not have a chance at beating Foreman only vitali would stand a chance because of his height and chin but other than that he could still be beaten by George

Foreman is very famous for going 75 rounds in a bout.
