Young George of '73 is the best George of the 70's, he wins this fight easily. By '94 he's too far gone. However, Foreman of 88-91 might be a different story.

Old Foreman by a stoppage mid to late rounds.
i knew that probably you were the retard who picked 94 foreman , just like you picked oliver mccall againts prime foreman lmao!!!

94 might be too late but a 91 Foreman could beat the younger one.

McCall was no Chuvalo , his right hand was efficient against de bigger men , not against de smaller men such as Tyson , Norris , Mike Hunter .
It would have missed them from above , but a big man has nowhere 2 duck and hence Lewis & Akinwande and McCall also beat Lance Whitaker (7 yrs his junior) and convincingly beat David Jaco . McCall was a terror 2 big men , 4man's only hope in this , is that he might not had been big enough , that or some1 bribing McCall 2 lose , or catching him fresh out of de crackhouse .

McCall was not only more durable than Chuvalo , but also a far more devast8ing puncher , and had a far better defense and was stronger . Deducing from Chuvalo about McCall is extreme cluelessness .

Prime Foreman would win...of course. I rate George high all time but his comeback, although an unequaled feat in hwt history, was greatly aided by the watered down talent of the era. Foreman of the 70's jab alone would allow him to beat the older version. Young George has an awesome telephone pole jab and the older version would not be able to avoid it. I don't see old George being knocked out for a 10 count. Just a gradual battering over 7 rounds and the fight is stopped. Youth is served. Regarding the best Foreman vs McCall...a joke. Foreman dominates until the ref stops it. One sided battering.

What is watered down is de poster's above brain (not that i did not know it b4) , as if 1990s 4man fought de best (excepting Holyfield) of that "watered down" era . de worst McCall could do if payed enough 2do it , was like he did vs Bruno .
But even in that scenario , if 4man tries 2 press 2 much , he gets surprised worse than he got vs 37 years old Ron Lyle , and 1 knows what it means .

The hwt division has been watered down for over 30 years. Too many champions who never should be champion. Too many pathways by which an ordinary fighter could win a title.
