    Frazier was actually 214 when Foreman took the championship from him if you recall things correctly. Of course you ignored this and cherry picked a previous weight of 205 because that suited your agenda.

    Foreman would be a tough fight for Vitali.

    George was a big man by the standards of any era. George was realistically a 230 pound guy and in his fight against Young looked superb in that shape. He really is no more than 10 pounds lighter than the Klitschkos naturally and brings insane qualities to the table.

    He's such an underrated guy. He was a slugger for sure and not the type to outbox you but unlike many other sluggers who didnt crack greatness George knew how to get the KO almost every time.

    Underrated footwork, underrated defense, underrated handspeed, insanse power and good combo punching (see round 2 vs Lyle), monster chin and the heart of a Lion, great ring instincts and natural fighting ability, knew how to fight big better than anyone (this is the reason why Manny Steward considered Foreman perhaps the greatest H2H heavyweight)

    George was just a wrecking ball in his prime.

    Fury is great at controlling range. Jab-and-grab all the way.

    You wouldn't have thought that, standing in front of him in 1973!

    So if you had have being, a heavyweight stood in front of Foreman back then, you'd have thought 'Piece of cake, he's a dummy' ',??

    It doesn't necessarily mean that Foreman would knock down Vitali, Styles makes fights, I think Vitali would endure all rounds...
