    Povetkin would probably win a UD. If Tommy Morrison could outbox him, Olympic champion could as well.

    Povetkin by some way. UD.

    Sasha's defence is good enough to avoid and mitigate the older guys big shots and he was busy enough to handily outwork Foreman.

    Povetkin wins every round to an UD, and that's coming from a Foreman fan.

    Old Foreman is completely outmatched.

    Povetkin would probably win nine out of ten by UD, or something like that.

    Povetkin easily.

    Old Foreman is a bit of a myth, full respect he was a tough as boot leather old man and still had that brutal punch but that's really all he had, and Povetkin doesn't have a Michael moorer chin.

    If Foreman could be outboxed by Tommy Morrison, it's safe to say that Povetkin would have little problems dealing with him.

    Foreman by KO, George went the distance with Evander at that age and rocked him several times. Who exactly has Povetkin beat?

    If you think Morrison beat Foreman by coming forward like he usually does , then it means you probably never watched the fight.

    Tommy was boxing defensively off the back foot for 90% of that fight. He had to implement a stick n move game going backwards othrewise he would have been knocked out.

    Povetkin would fight Foreman head -on like he has done with every opponent he ever fought.

    If flat footed , feather fist Chambers swept the first 6 rounds and peppered Povs face with shot after shot , then Foreman who can punch a wall down would knock him clean out.

    Carlos Takam won 5-6 rounds against Povetkin and completely out jabbed him. If you're getting out jabbed and beat by Takam ,then your're in for a world of hurt against one of the best and hardest jabbers of all time.

    Nobody ever beat Foreman by walking him down. Wrong match up for Povetkin. He beats the 50 year old 4Man that Briggs fought , but not the 38-42 version.

    Btw , Foreman was 44 against Morrison.

    Povetkin would be winning right up to the point Foreman lands flush and then bombs him out with the follow up combo.

    You don't beat Foreman by going right at him like Povetkin always does. Maybe he can do what Morrison did but we've never seen Povetkin fight any other way other than going right at guys.

    Foreman's heavy jab, size and power eventually sees Povetkin stopped late. Foreman afterwards looks like he been hit with a bat but he comes out on top. Povetkin is good buy he's no Holyfield who beat a 42 year old Foreman.

    Povetkin, 9 out of 10 times.
    Hell, I'd even favor Pov against prime George. Styles make fights.
