Whd do you have and why?
It's really a 50:50 fight.
Foreman, when Fury gets up against George after being down he won't survive like he did against Wilder.
Tyson Fury from the second fight against Deontay Wilder is in my opinion the favorite. Not just against George Foreman, but I don’t know which heavyweight champion in history would be the favorite against such a Tyson Fury.
Tyson Fury 90/10.
Exactly, Foreman was a far better finisher. The overhand right would have knocked Fury silly.
I don't see Fury withstanding the intense pressure from a fighter of Foreman's caliber who can KO him with either hand. Fury may win a few rounds but he gets caught and subsequently stopped in a fight where he held his own.
Fury on points. He has a big height and reach advantage, and he's far more skilled, so he won't have any problems out-scoring Foreman. When Foreman gets in close, Fury will use the same tactic he did on Wilder, by clinching Foreman, tying him up and laying with his body weight on him. Fury won't get the KO though, cause he won't be dumb to open up and risk getting KO'd himself, he'll fight the smart fight. I know some will say Foreman will gas out towards the end of the fight, but I don't think he'll be able to land enough punches in order to get that tired.
Wilder hits harder and is faster, despite not being very skilled.
Foreman is slow and he has many looping/telegraphed punches that are easy to spot and avoid.
While Fury is my current favourite HW and arguably the best HW currently in the game, I would have to go with Big George here.
Fury has faced nobody on the h2h level of prime Foreman, neither in terms of what the man could absorb nor what he could dish out.
When Foreman hurts Fury, he will know how to finish him off.
Foreman, probably inside the distance.
Foreman couldn't even land properly on an Ali that laid on the ropes, so how on Earth is he gonna land big on someone who's just as fast as Ali (the 74 version), and on top of that is stronger, more skilled and with a height and reach advantage ?!
Yes. Tyson Fury uses his body weight to exhaust his opponent.
I believe it will do the same against White.
What you say is true. However, 68 of Foreman's 76 wins were by knockout. His punches may have been telegraphed but they weren't that easy to avoid.
Foreman is twice the fighter Wilder is, knows how to cut the ring off , parry punches , and has a battering ram jab. Wilder ,uh, let's see,,, oh he hits hard and that's it.
Agreed, that's all Wilder has, but he has speed, and that is very important against someone like Fury.
Foremans right hand swing to the body would send Fury to the hospital.
