I've been near ringside for Bowe, Lewis, Tyson and Holy. I damn sure am convinced Lewis was the hardest of those punchers.

I was just playing devil's advocate!! Foreman would have to tag Fedor quick though. I'm still a huge boxing fan, but I've come to appreciate the skills of top level MMA guys. I used to think of the heavyweight boxing champion as the KING of MEN; I'm not so sure that's true anymore, though!

So, you also believe what Briggs said and that Vitali's power is greater than Foreman's and Lewis'.

And yes, I am black.

briggs faced the oldest foreman... foreman was finished in 1997 and still he was stolen against briggs, foreman was very very slow and fat in 1997, it is very funny because some people think that "old foreman" was always the same fighter , the old foreman who fought cooney,serosky,maguila,qawi and holyfield was much better, MUCH better,stronger and dynamic than he was in 93-97. vitali klitschko is underrated as puncher, i think that his hitting power is comparable to the hitting power of lewis,i would give the edge to lewis, but it is close.

i am white.. and?

watch foreman chuvalo fight
chuvalo was a big strong guy and foreman grabs him and throws him clean across the ring so he bounced off the ropes WITH 1 HAND!

yes, the 510 187 pouns marciano and the 63 214 ali... who was stronger? what a shit post...

plus lewis was packed of muscle trained in a gym at 247 pounds, foreman was drained and slim at 220, when both men were in their 20s , the highest weight of foreman was 232 (IN THE 70s)and the hightest of lewis was 235 pounds(in the 90s). FOREMAN WAS THE STRoNGER MAN, AND LEWIS WAS NATURALLY 5 POUNDS HEAVIER THAN FOREMAN , NoT MORE, AND IT WAS BECAUSE HE WAS TALLER. FOREMAN WASA BULKER MAN.

Foreman looked a little pudgy and soft at 232 pounds in Toronto against those five guys.
Compare Lewis and Bowe at 235, then compare Foreman at 232. Heck, who looked fatter at 250 pounds, Foreman, Lewis or Bowe?

foreman NEVER LOOKED pudgy at 230 pounds, he looked strong, compact and solid in 76-77 he fought at 228-232 pounds (in real fights, not the show vs 5 men),
funny because you are using demagoguery sying this crap "who looked fatter at 250 pounds"? bowe and lewis were in their 30s they were younger than foreman , bowe WAS A COMPLETE PORK AT 245 POUNDS!!!, he wa sin his peak shape at 230-235, lewis looked sthletic at 227 against ruddock and he was in good shape at 235 too, he looked ponderous and slow like crap at 250, of course foreman had more fat at 250 because he was an old man, but also he had more musculature than bowe and lewis, foreman had a huge biceps and he was stronger than lewis and bowe and he could carry this weight without problems with great stamina.
and you are insinutating that if you have no fat you are in your natural weight, it is dumb!!!, a bodybuilder has no fat and he is packed of muscle, but he is not in his natural weight... the % fat does not prove who is the bigger man or who is in his natural weight , it is the size of the frame. FRANK BRUNO WEIGHED 228 POUNDS IN THE FIRST FIGHT AGAINST TYSON AND HE WAS ALL MUSCLE... IN THE SECOND FIGHT HE WEIGHED AROUND 248 POUNDS AND HE WAS STILL ALL MUSCLE, HE DID NOT HAVE FAT.... BUT HE WAS NOT IN HIS NATURAL WEIGHT... WE NEVER SAW FOREMAN FIGHTING IN HIS EARLY 30S... FOR SURE HE WOULD HAVE BEEN A 230-235 POUNDER... HE HAD TONS OF PROBLEMS TO MAKE LESS OF 230 POUNDS IN HIS LATE 20S... FOREMAN COULD TRAIN INA GYM AND HE WOULD CARRY 240 POUNDS TOO... HIS FRAME COULD CARRY IT... BUT HE WAS A NATURAL 230 POUNDER... THE BEST WEIGHT OF LEWIS WAS 230 POUNDS, HE LOOKED FAST, ATHLETIC AT THIS WEIGHT ... AND THE BEST WEIGHT OF FOREMAN IN GREAT SHAPE WAS AROUND 225 POUNDS AGAINST NORTON ..NICE TRY LORD TROLL

(FOREMAN AT 230 LOOKED BY FAR MORE SOLID THAN BOWE AT 235)

Please to be referencing the results of presses and sets between the two by which you will prove Foreman's greater strength. Lewis undoubtedly fought in an era of stronger fighters (for whatever reasons you chose to believe), which may lead to the impression he possessed less strength. However, did he have the opportunity to fight those scrawny heavies of the 70's he would have looked like Atlas.
But what about 90's Foreman who was 255-260 pounds? He looked as strong as ever, maybe stronger than ever. A lot of that fat was really muscle.

I'm going with George on this one.
