    Prime Pov would slaughter any version of Whyte. Whyte needed Pov to have covid in order to beat him.

    I'd shag my gran for 10 million

    But of the list you've put ..the brook fight should've happened.. do you think khan was scared to fight Jon thaxton or John Murray?

    But is this the current Canelo, or the version who Floyd fought?

    If Floyd rematched the same Canelo in 2013, I think it would have been a similar result.

    I don't think that Ali could ever have replicated that same performance.

    He psyched out George and exhausted him in heat and humidity of Zaire.

    George would surely have gone into the rematch with different tactics where he'd have paced himself better.

    Ali really executed a masterplan.

    It was one of the bravest/stupidest things to carry out at the stage of his career. But it's the only way that he could win the fight.

    I don't think there was another way that he could have won the fight.

    The thing is that after that fight, Foreman didn´t really change anything about his approach. So it doesn´t really suggest that Foreman would have changed his gameplan for a rematch.
    And what do you mean by his brave gameplan? What would you describe it as?
    Because Ali was ahead on the cards at the time of the stoppage.

    Ali landed the first big right hand in the first 10 seconds.

    I can see how Foreman could have paced himself more, but Ali was outboxing him.

    I'm playing devils advocate...you've said khan was basically scared of everyone...when he's fought more dangerous fighters than nearly all mentioned..but yes he did get gifted a winnable title fight...he's not the first n won't be the last

    edit...oh n dillian ****ed himself with his tests
