    So the bum from Brazil is now a corner stone in Foremans career......................and the baddest man Super Killer old Foreman was not even the first one to wax that cab driver, courtesy of Holyfield..............and add insult to injury Foreman was fighting on the under card...the irony

    Similar to Ed Mahone being a "stellar" win for the arm puncher VK...

    For the THIRD or FOURTH time can somebody list a HUNGRY top ranked HARD HITTING Heavyweight contender on comeback Foreman 's resume.....

    Don King had him fight on the undercard to set up a fight with Tyson which never materialized for whatever reason.

    No one said Rodrigues was a "Stellar win". No Neck claimed Foreman never beat a top 10 opponent and I corrected him, but now he's stumbling about and refusing to admit he was wrong. I was 2 years old at the time and had nothing to do with the rankings so I don't get why people are lashing out at me.

    For the 3rd or 4th time, Foreman fought plenty of hard hitting prime fighters. He actually faced more hard hitters than anyone at HW aside from Ali. Check the record books.

    Can you name ANY prime ranked hard hitting boxers Ruddock beat? 3rd time asking. :lol:

    Bert Cooper! Coked out. Rodrigues! No, no, how 'bout Cooney! Nope. The answer is nobody. Foreman batting 0 for the 90's until a miraculous punch against a chinny champion got him the title. And then immediately turns around to duck Old ass Tony Tucker and get a gift against Euro nobody Axel Schulz. Then ducks Schulz in the forced rematch.

    The above is what you call a tragic comedy where everybody knew deep down they were involved with a sideshow circus even Ringling Brothers would shake their head at.

    A pro Internet debater at his finest.......

    We are talking old OLD O L D Foreman , you dig ?

    Ruddock took out still prime Boncrusher in brutal fashion two years after his loss to Tyson and went undefeated against so so comp for 9 fights after, so he was not washed up or shot when Ruddock iced him., faded , perhaps but not shot, As his name suggests , Smith could crack really good, he was limited but hit hard.

    Ruddock took on arguable the best heavy on the planet in Mike Tyson twice and lost x2...............nevertheless it is no shame to loose to Tyson and he made a gallant effort.

    Foreman does not even have a Bonecrusher level Hitter on his winning record and now where near did he ever get close to a lights out puncher like Tyson..

    Conclusion: Foreman never fought a TOP ranked HARD hitting opponent in his entire comeback or ANY dangerous HARD hitting Heavy , period.

    For the slow witted like you....the discussion is about old OLD O L D Foreman.

    Great summing up. Ruddock lost to heavy punchers. He didn't have much for foot speed. He wasn't much of a boxer, and didn't exactly have the world's best chin. How does he beat Foreman?

    I'm asking without a trace of facetiousness, honestly curious.

    The breakdown is that Foreman would get beaten half to death.

    We’re talking about the Ring, not the WBA, chief.

    I’m not stumbling. He beat zero top ten contenders according to the Ring.

    Bingo.

    Apparently Stewart/Saverese/Schulz/Grimsley are all better fighters then Ruddock......all went the distance with Grandpa Foreman......all never ranked even remotely high like Ruddock.............Stewart packed certified glass and still Foreman could not put him away instead he used his own face as target practice for Stewart

    Pathetic, he struggled with the above total ham and eggers but he is going to "walk" Ruddock into his "big" shot and finishes him.....

    You know who was old? A 36 year old Bonecrusher Smith. Yet you consider that a "prime" fighter.

    Smith was coming off of 2 losses and a draw before Ruddock beat him you imbecile! It would have taken you 2 minutes to google this!

    Smith was not prime. Smith was not ranked. Smith was not undefeated.

    You are in no position to question anyone's intelligence. Log out. You are easy work son. :lol:

    That is not a "break down" at all. I could easily just write Foreman beats Ruddock to death. You wanna try applying to ESPN with those break down skills? I'm not asking for a long winded essay, but some sort of actual rationalization for how Ruddock wins the fight. You haven't explained jack for 8 pages.

    You didn't say anything about the ring. Do the sanctioning body rankings not count because it's inconvenient? Rodrigues was ranked #2 and #3 in 2 different organizations when he lost to #1 contender Holyfield. There isn't anything strange about him remaining in the top 10 just 1 year later if he didn't lost to anyone else.

    Let's say we ignore Rodrigues because it doesn't suit your agenda.

    Foreman knocked out an undefeated prime unified champion. How many of those did Ruddock beat?

    Just to mention also, Moorer went on to win the heavyweight title again, making him a two-time heavyweight champion.

    A huge win for Foreman that imo is bulletproof.

    It also bears saying that George went on to beat an ultimately two-time heavyweight champ in Briggs as well (now please, someone tell me he lost that fight).

    Just me.

    I guess Razor is gonna throw his left hookercut and Big George is gonna stand there with his hands down. That is the only scenario Ruddock has a shot. Even then Foreman could probably take it. Foreman's jab controls this and he puts Ruddock away when Razor drops his hands and telegraphs that left, from the outside no less.
    Razor was tough, he would get up. He might go up and down more than an elevator. The ref would stop it when he gets tired of counting.
