    What makes you think Vitali can last 4 rounds with Foreman pounding him out? His chin was never proven by a puncher in the same realm as George. George stopped a better chin than Vitali in Chuvalo.

    To much length advantage, Vitali has high iq not to use it here, keep it long, physically strong enough to tie the much smaller man up
    Sanders was for one shot was as hard as anything George threw, way quicker too causing more damage for a single shot, George had heavier hands in general with every shot mostly, but that straight left of Sanders was vicious and fast, if you stand up to that flush without going down your chin is certified tough, he did fight other fighters that could bang though
    How do you know ?? Vitali's known for his toughness, its not a myth, just like Chuvalo, its proven, the thing is Vitali is a much bigger and better fighter than Chuvalo. The more I type this to you the more im thinking how easier it would be for Klit, seriously. 8 rounds max

    Vitalis record against big tough sluggers is iffy at best.

    Shannon briggs, Samuel Peter, and lennox lewis, 2-1 record with the loss being a controversial unfortunate cut stoppage.

    However, being as objective and honest as possible, all 3 were only good names on paper. Briggs was past his prime at 38 and did nothing, essentially a punching bag who barely landed a punch for many rounds. Peter was a B level lard ass with no defense or ring iq and couldn't even get past vitalis jabs. Lennox, while formidable and skilled, was 37 and also overweight and way past his prime with poor stamina yet he took vitali to the brink in a slug fest.

    Too many unanswered questions regarding vitalis chin and how he'd fare in a war with a prime foreman if we're being honest. He either looks impressive beating on an inferior opponent who offers little resistance or he struggles with a fat old man with poor stamina. Hard to gauge exactly where he stands in a war.

    Obviously if Vitali could make it a boxing match and used his reach to his advantage he'd have a big chance of bringing home a big win. But im not confident he'd be able to keep george off of him forever and im even less confident that he'd survive a war.

    too MUCHlength.Its a one inch reach difference. This post is a joke.



    so how come sanders was not ATG olympic gold undisputed hw champion. in reality a failed contender who couldnt contend for a title shot. And retired by then, almost 40!
    The stupidity of this bit confounds me! You are claiming that shot chuck wepner is too slick for prime ali!



    chuvalo is MUCH more proven, are you joking?

    I cant see Foreman still standing at the end of 12 hard rounds, he's exhausted well before that, old Foreman had better stamina or more brains to pace himself..Foreman the killer is a 5/6 round fighter max, and Vitali does better than Ali and Young !

    I think Vitali would take this. Foreman's facing a bigger, stronger guy with actual skills. If little 213lb Jimmy Young could make him see Jesus, ol' George might see the senior partner of the firm by the end of the fight with Vitali.
