Default Fantasy match up- Fedor Vs George Foreman

this isnt a boxing match or a mma fight.
lol
what if these two started scuffling in the street.
they both big punchers, foreman being the bigger puncher.
does foreman land the lucky punch?

P.S. Foreman doesn't land a lucky punch, he lands a well placed stragetic punch that sends Fedor into slumberland.

Fedor throws a right straight into a clinch. Takedown. Foreman walks off with a broken arm.

I've always thought that the best "what if they trained mma instead" matchup would have been Big George vs. Karelin. So much power between the two.

I guess I'd give Foreman a better chance in a street scuffle against Fedor than I would in an MMA match, just because there are chances to punch before the other guy is ready and shirts and hair to hold while punching. Then again, Fedor would be much better with any clothing grip fighting because of his sambo/judo stuff, so a Foreman trained only in boxing vs. Fedor would probably go just as ALF says.

Foreman got chocked out or get an arm broken, and say he was drugged.

Prime, George was a midget compared to Karelin. Foreman was about 217-225 in his prime, Karelin was a colossal 286lbs who probably walked around at 300lbs. He would throw lil' George around like a ragdoll. George would be advised to drop down to 205lb if he were around today.

Not too many people (if anyone) would ever have been able to hang with Karelin, but in terms of striking power, toughness, aggression and strength Foreman was a hell of a mix. I'd never imagine him out grappling Karelin.

Foreman could always get off first and ko Fedor, but I would put my car on fedor throwing him to the ground with his world class sambo and judo and either stomping his face or following him to the ground and snapping off an arm or choking the life out of foreman, and I love foreman

Karelin vs foreman with both being trained in mma would be great, but I would go with karelin; wrestling transfers better and karelin was not just a physical freak he was technically perfect which foreman was not.

So given the higher skill, bigger size, and more applicable style I would take karelin easily, but big George could have wrecked a whole lot of fantasy fighters

Big George draws Colt 1911, Fedor lands in a coffin.

If they started off at close quarters then Big George knocks Fedor out but if there is a decent distance between the 2 then Fedor beats Big George with considerable ease.

Do you think a Prime Foreman could KO fedor with only one or two punches?

No one really knows. Does Fedor take George for granted and get ko'd? Vica versa, does George think he is the big dog and get whooped by the small fat man? Hard to say on the street.
