Agreed. Lennox would box Foreman. Would use his feet to stay out of harm and his jab to keep Floyd away. Of course Big George was excellent in cutting of the ring but even then Lewis was strong, had a very good uppercut in close and a good defence. Foreman has a good chance with his power and he would land and get Lewis in trouble but I donīt think he would land the KO punch. Lewis UD.

Lewis UD, but in terms of someone I expect to be losing on points, Foreman will have the most dangerous puncher's chance imo.

I don't think Lennox could move well enough to avoid Foreman's early rushes, and I don't think he has the chin/recovery powers to survive.

Personally, I think he has the sharp punches and strength behind them to keep Foreman off-balance when he rushes therefore making it easier to move away from.

Lewis KO in the 6th.

Sure the BOG (Big Overrated George) has a realistic puncher's chance, but I'd back Lewis to play it cautious, pick his spots, and then unload. Lennox is just a better fighter all-round.

I think, of all the right hands there are, in all of the divisions history, Lennox's is the worst for Foreman. It's long, accurate and as we've seen, walking into it makes for trouble. I don't care to much for Foreman's defence.

And I think that Lewis hits harder than Lyle, has better timing than Lyle, is more accurate than Lyle.

I have played this one out several times in my head, and I keep getting different results. I'll think on it some more and come back. Am I allowed to say I just don't know who would win?
