    Do you think I’m Dubblechin? That’s who you quoted.

    As much as it pains you to consider, there is a high chance that Foreman would get nailed by Wilder and a good chance that Foreman would have to fight deep into the scheduled rounds. These are circumstances he might not react well too.

    Niche boxing message boards and alcohol do not mix.

    Yes you're right..many apologies. I did mix you up with Doublechin. You can ignore that part.



    Why would any of these considerations pain me ?

    I don't have a pain-inducing stake in this matter, nor any other matter on this forum.



    As I stated already, Foreman might well get 'nailed' by the Alabaman...but that wouldn't matter.

    At the risk of repeating myself...Foreman can take Wilder's power but Wilder can not take Foreman's.


    And to repeat myself again...George knew how to cut off the ring. After a short chase, Wilder would discover what real power felt like.

    Wilder effectively ended Szpilka’s career and nearly regained the lineal heavyweight title by landing bombs when he was walked down and cornered. It’s not that simple.

    But again, it depends on who is taking the 'bombs.'

    Landing on Foreman won't have the same effect as landing on Szpiza or Fury .

    And he's not landing on George without eating something in return.


    IMO, George is overall, more skilled than Deontay, has a much better chin, has more power and is much stronger.

    It's possible Wilder could get the W, but he would be very much the underdog.

    No, those are just your opinions. Wilder def has more one punch power and fighting to your strengths is a skill in itself.

    I do not think Foreman had more durability than Fury. I think he had less.

    It is all about opinions and yours is certainly in the minority

    Of course they are my opinions !

    In my post, I prefaced them with IMO.
    This is an abbreviation for "In My Opinion..."


    No, I don't think so. That would just be your OPINION.

    It is.

    Unfortunately for Wilder, when you only have ONE strength, that's usually not enough against elite competition.


    That again, is a matter of opinion...probably mostly based on Zaire.
    And again, I don't think it would matter that much.

    Wilder would have advantages in quickness, power, stamina, length, he carries his power for the entire fight, he has all of the advantages against the early 70s Foreman. I can't think of an advantage for Foreman. Wilder does not engage his opponents unless he wants to, he uses his length and speed to create and close distance. Of course this one can't happen but if it did I'd like to have the chance to bet on Wilder.

    I don't think this is a particularly difficult fight for Fury. He is a stylistic nightmare for Foreman.

    I don't know. Fury showed some downright inhumane durability against Wilder.

    lol Is this this same Tyson Fury that was put on ***** Street by Cunningham? Fury is only relevant in today’s pedestrian heavyweight division.
