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)
Foreman DID lift weights during his comeback -- sorry to break that to you! Foreman was a big fan of pumping iron, and he did a lot of it. That means that comeback Foreman was not in his natural, untrained state! Boo freakin' hoo for you!!!!

And Foreman's FRAME was no bigger than Riddick Bowe's or Lennox Lewis'.

Lewis and Bowe had much less fat on them at 240-250 than did Foreman, and Foreman being in his 40s doesn't change much. After all, he took up strength training in his late 30s-early 40s, so he probably increased his muscle mass.

The next thing you are going to say is that Foreman was naturally bigger than Primo Carnera. LOL....

Go take down your Foreman posters that you have on your wall and go pick a new hero to worship!

He did very low weight and high reps not to be confused of lifting heavy which is generally what people want to know about him and weights

OLD FOREMAN TRAINED WEIGHTS, YOUNG FOREMAN NEVER DID TOUCH A WEIGHT, he said that he did not even puss ups until 1976 for the second frazier fight,, OLD FOREMAN TRAINED WEIGHTS AND HE WEIGHED 257 POUNDS and he looked a rock against holyfield ... YOUNG FOREMAN NEVER DID AND HE WEIGHED 230...

THEIR FRAMES WERE SIMILAR IN SIZE , FOREMAN´S WAS WIDER OF SHOULDERS AND BUILT FOR THE RAW POWER, BOWE´S AND LENNOX´S WERE A BIT TALLER. BUT THEY WERE NOT AS STRONG. BOWE NEVER WAS MUSCULAR OR RIPPED AT 235, HIS BODY LOOKED CRAP, FOREMAN WAS BY FAR STRONGER, AND LEWIS WAS AN ATHLETIC GUY NOT A PURE POWER GUY

I watched Foreman v Morrison last night. In the first round, old George pushed Morrison back so hard Tommy literally flew into the ringpost, and the guy weighed 226. It was a pretty impressive feat of strength.

Foreman wider of shoulders than Bowe and Lewis? Look again. Foreman was thicker because he was carrying a lot more bodyfat, but he was not wider.
Geesh, your hero worship of Foreman and his physical dimensions borders on lunacy.
And yes, Monk is taller than his old man. Does that bother you?

Too bad boxing is not a powerlifting contest or a strongman competition though. Foreman was so slow and lethargic against Morrison that he made Morrison look like Sugar Ray Leonard. All the power in the world is almost useless if you can't deliver it effectively.

Man, Foreman looked bad that night against Morrison. I mean, Morrison was gasping for air by the third round, and all Foreman did was casually follow Morrison around the ring. Foreman didn't let his hands go, and he fought like he was encased in cement. I know Foreman was old, but still, he seemed to have more vigor and speed against Savarese and Briggs, and those fights were several years after the Morrison fight. Foreman/Morrison stunk!

Could Lewis muscle a shot Holyfield? No and did you see Foreman push Holyfield around the ring? Why are we even having this debate. Foreman is far stronger than Lewis.

Foreman is a lot stronger than Lewis. Lewis used his size to lean on opponents, Foreman used his strength to push guys around. guys like Morrison, Frazier and Holyfield
