    It’s revisionist to think that Ruddock was not a h2h problem and that he wouldn’t be favored in 1990 over Foreman.

    This is not the sort of fight Foreman was setting up for himself.

    Thanks for asking. I'm all healed up now. I still had the nasty scars for a long time, but have felt fully functional for a couple weeks now.

    Grandpa Foreman the Killer..............except he never showed it in the Ring, he fought nothing but set up fights to get a title shot. Fact

    If Ruddock is such a bum how come Foreman never faced him? Easy money in dispatching a top ten opponent ?

    How come Foreman never met those "bums"Bonecrushers/Dokes/Weavers...............afterall they were total push overs, easy money again ?
    Instead Foreman fought some Palookas nobody had ever heard of.

    Shot to pieces Tony "Megacoke" Tucker was such a threat to Superkiller old Foreman that he rather got stripped of his belts then to face him.......afterall prime Tucker was just a bum according to the forum "experts" so how come Foreman was afraid of the washed up shot one version? well , fighting some extremely dangerous Euro Kraut cream puff instead is like the landing in Normandy, good ol Foreman had to put that to rest, civilization was at risk, Schulz had to be beat down............except the euro bum did not follow the script, actually out fought the Fossil and got robbed...............and then Super Killer Foreman refused a rematch and voila, got stripped again.

    Name me ONE top ranked HARD hitting hungry contender old Foreman ever beat in the Ring................there aint none........Tommy Chin was hard hitting but hardly ranked and Grandpa Foreman lost decisively .Fact. The hardest puncher that has ever lived according to the forum "experts" could never put glass chinned Morrison away, something trial horse Mercer and C level Bent did with ease......

    Again you are putting words in my mouth. I never said Ruddock was not a h2h threat at the time in general. I was discussing how he would do h2h against Foreman specifically.

    Whether Foreman was willing to set up for that fight is again, a completely different and irrelevant subject. Nor do I care if you think matchmakers would have favored him at the time. The only thing that matters is how they match up h2h and who you think would win. Is that such a difficult concept for you to grasp?

    Ruddock went life and death with Tyson. Foreman went life and death with Alex Stewart. Both in similar time frames.

    A totally washed up shot inactive Ruddock..............

    Name me O N E top ranked H A R D hitting TOP contender Comeback Foreman EVER beat.................and a glass chinned ex light heavy was never ever "hard" hitting at heavy, Moorer was average at best in the power department............Proof? He went life and death with the White Buffalo which a shot to shid Tyson impersonater stopped with ONE shot.

    Theres only 1 way to settle this....lets get Ruddock and Foreman out of retirement and have them face off in 2021. Winner gets a shot at 2022 Tyson.

    @NoNeck and @sauhund II, tisk, tisk, tisk. You're not listening 2 the **** that's been told 2 u over and over again. You're proving how defenseless you're position is by not addressing it. U wanna talk about how presumably Glass City Cobra and RulesMakeItInteresting, and most certainly myself think 90s Foreman was invincible. You're arguing w/ yourselves, cuz no one ever said that. The discussion is about Ruddock's own problems.

    @Glass City Cobra, this is getting familiar isn't it? Just like the old Cleveland Williams discussions, eh? Figuratively back 2 back, absorbing all this smart-ass ****.
    All we need now is a hot-headswagdelfadeel and we have a ferocious thread that lasts into the next month.

    Funny thing is, while sauhund II wants 2 go on and on and on about the unimpressive Foreman resume of the 90s, and legitimately I'll add @sauhund II, he wants 2 ignore the fact that Ruddock's OVERALL career is basically the same as Foreman's comeback career. But even then, Ruddock is still less powerful, has a much worse jab, much worse stamina, and still does not take a great punch well.
