Default If a prime George Foreman was transplanted into this era how well would he do?

How would he fair against David Price, Nicoli Valuev, the Klitchkos, David Haye, and Chiroso.

Id love to see the train wreck of Foreman out slugging Valuev and David Price!

God would I love to see Foreman smack Haye about. That'd be wonderful.

Vitali on his best night could beat him, but I wouldn't expect it. Wlad could as well. Horribly dangerous fight for him though, obviously.

I think he would very easily climb the ranks and beat all the top contenders, but fall short against the Klits. Of course, Vitali is 41 years of age and not in top form the way that he was 10 years ago, so a peak Foreman might give him problems at THIS junction. Wlad is too scientific and wouldn't take any chances fighting George in close. He knows how to take advantage of his reach and if need be, will outpoint him using a "safety first" approach. The size and conditioning of both Klitschkos would make it difficult for Foreman to impose himself on them physically, the way that he often enjoyed doing throughout his career versus smaller men.

I think he cleans up and that includes both the Klits.

We all saw how Wach put one fist on Wlad's chin and it stopped him in his tracks, bending forward at the waist and covering up. I'd have to think Foreman does the same, and takes Wlad's head off with a few uppercuts or whatever he wants.

He would last a couple years and flame out... like he did in the 70's.

Prime foreman was a force of nature. No chance either Klit would stand up to that power and physicality. Both brothers get that look in their eye that they don't want to be in the ring when they get hurt.

He won, what, three fights against elite heavies during his "prime"? A chinny Norton, a faded merging towards shot Frazier... and a bar room brawler in Lyle. Big deal.

Like I said, he would look good for a couple years then flame out. Think Riddick Bowe.

Hahah i would love to see him smack the shit out of Haye, the staredowns between the two would leave Haye shitting his pants. Vitali is the only one i see who give him real trouble

Lots of people in here have no clue. Foreman would walk through either brother. George power, as mentioned, was a force of nature. No dog in George...the guy had a true warriors heart and looked to kill his opponent with every shot. Any one of the shots he hit Ali with in round one in 74 would have them looking for an exit.
