He'd do exactly the same as a better version of Sam Peter.

Like I said, he would look good for a couple years then flame out. Think Riddick Bowe.
Riddick Bowe actually had technical skills, unlike Foreman.

What a load of crap. The force of nature was getting rocked by guys like Gregorio Peralta and Jimmy Young. Vitali took shots from Lewis that would have dropped a herd of rhinos. And he didn't look for an exit. The **** are you talking about? Seriously, have some respect you ****ing clown.

Frazier, 29 years old, undefeated, reigning champion, was shot? **** off shithead.

Take your meds and sit your ass down. Young Foreman barely got by one-handed former light heavyweight Peralta. And Peralta had like 90 fights on him at the time too. Foreman gets schooled and beat up badly by big guys who can box a little bit and can take a punch.

The Klitschkos would be the only ones with a chance against the 1st career version of Foreman. A Foreman is exactly what this division needs but there doesn't seem to be one out there.

I think Foreman would do well, but his wins would be more hardfought. There's a lot of chin, weight, and punching power on average in todays heavyweight, and not a lot of footspeed.

George would bulldoze his way to the top and stay there for a long time. Nobody out there,today,would beat him.

He beats everyone but this current version of Wlad, which would be 60/40 in favour of Klit. He stops Haye and an old Vitali via TKO (Vitali looked awful against Manuel Charr, he was getting caught with shots that he would have avoided with ease a few years ago).

The current version of Wlad Klitschko would beat Foreman. Foreman beats everyone else.

I will counter your well constructed, nuanced argument with these questions.

What were Frazier's greatest victories after the first Foreman fight?

What were his greatest victories before the first Foreman fight?

What do your answers to the two above questions tell you about Frazier's career trajectory at the time of the Foreman fight?

Joe had already been at the peak of his game for 5 or 6 years, a very, very long time for a heavy of his style and size.

Game, set, match.

Still, a very impressive win.
