Default The George Foreman who fought Gerry Cooney or Evander Holyfield vs The Joe Louis who

Fought Ezzard Charles or Jerzey Joe Walcott.

Joe Louis was dropped 2 times in both fights with Walcott I believe and Walcott isnt as strong, big, or punches as hard as Foreman. I believe Foreman would make quick work of Louis.

The one that fought Walcott would beat Foreman fairly easy.

Yep just like Louis beat the 190 pound Walcott pretty easy. Infact when did Louis ever beat somebody his size of bigger easy? His glass chin wouldnt hold up to Foreman's power. When did Joe Louis ever out box a half way skilled guy? Did he out box Charles? Was Charles putting the kind of pressure on him Foreman would? I think not. Could Louis out box the short, slow, unskilled Rocky Marciano? Nope and a 80 year old Foreman would be better than a prime Marciano.

Foreman at any age would always knockout Louis at any age.

An 80 year old Foreman would be better than Marciano?

The Joe Louis that fought Walcott and Charles are massively different. The Charles/Rocky ones were much more faded. Walcott is a completely different stylistic matchup than Foreman. Joe at this point out-boxes an old Foreman easily. Louis beat plenty of men bigger then him - what an ignorant thing to say.
