Foreman via huge KO! I would also add that Vitali in his prime was better than any version of Wladimir Klitschko.

Big George would probably flatten him today, what a silly question.

could you imagine the skill, long arms and out and out awkwardness of a prime Vitali?? he would bust up Foreman from the outside, hurting Foreman with ease it would be ridiculous. Foreman would look like he's in the middle of a full on storm. utter domination by Vitali, with the cherry on top when he stops Foreman after giving him the biggest ****ing kicking you could imagine.

Foreman has the much better resume. there is no argument about that. but H2H, Vitali would strip him down. shockingly easy work for him.
I just can't get Lewis v Vitaly out of my head when I think about this fight.
THe one way to beat Vitaly is not to try and box him. It's to take a shot to get in, and be big enough and strong enough to land your own right hand.

Lewis couldn't miss with his right against Vitalys low left hand, and "lean back" defence. If you can't lean back far enough, because the other guy is big and strong, and willing to take a shot, then you're in trouble.

Lewis is 6'5" with 84" reach.
Foreman 6'3.5' with 82" reach.

Vitali doesn't have "long arms". He has a 79" reach.

Lewis soaked up everything Vitaly could hit him with, and kept going, and kept landing.
I don't see how Foreman couldn't do that. Lewis threw all pretence of boxing out the window, and just fought. If he had to take 2 shots to land a right hand, he did.
Foremans chin is better than Lewis' as well.

Foreman would have no intention of standing on the outside eating punches. He's walk through them and just try and bludgeon Vitaly.

Probably a good fight to be honest.

I see a TKO7 for Foreman IMO
Good points you brought up. Would be a messy war of a fight.

He was tougher and he didnt have the mental issues so I'd agree. Too bad about the back injury,he lost out on some legacy time I think.

George said he didnt wanna fight Ken Norton because Ken was a "fearsome specimen" and we all so what happened there.

Jimmy Young was about as similar to Vitali as Willy Wonka! Young even gave Ali a hard time and arguably beat him.

Euro trash shouldn't be allowed to make any comments about a American fighter fighting a European fighter. The same Foreman that beat Briggs would beat any version of Wlad or Vitali.

Its funny when Euro trash will say Foreman couldn't box. Yeah because we know great the Klitchsko's are boxing. One has a bad chin the other is a ***** who quits when he is hurt.

To be blunt the Foreman of right now could probably beat either ***** Klitschko brother.

Wlad as quick as he wanted to end it. Foreman doesn't have one single advantage on Wlad.
