    We discuss scenarios where Young George gets the older version's boxing computer.

    But what about if Old George got his younger body back in the 90s? Same Old George mentally, but he goes into Cooney, Holyfield, Moorer, etc. with the body he used in the 70s.

    How does he do?

    He is probably the GOAT.

    I sometimes wonder if Foreman had the best natural tools of any hw champion.

    He’d be a very large Archie Moore almost.

    Well honestly, he’d destroy a lot of them potentially. He’d be able to jump between what he needed when he wanted it, for example Tommy Morrison is ravaged in minutes so is Moorer- Holyfield still likely beats him but I think he cuts it closer then I think 2-3 rounds I gave him… actually, it’d be interesting to see his style I like to imagine it’d look like a better intended version of the one Clancy had who was trying to pace himself better and box, but with new wisdom and layers to his defence.

    A 240 pound, lean, muscular bald guy who gives weekly church sermons while looking like the Terminator.

    None of them stood a chance against the old one. They just took advantage of his lack of speed in order to beat him to the punch though it was evident whenever he returned fire they couldn't handle him. That spells certain doom here considering the younger one was more aggressive about cutting off the ring and when he attacked, he did not step off the gas nor did he run out unlike the old one.

    No, he didn't, he was way too slow.

    If you give younger George stamina and a good boxing IQ then I see literally nobody beating him, the Ali fight just becomes Foreman beating up Ali for 15 rounds

    So "Old George" character, ring IQ, traps, patience, experience...mindset; and "young George" body, physique?
    IMO in that case the 90's were the golden era of heavyweights (and we would have enjoyed watching that).

    Oh man it wouldn't take long for him to destroy Moorer imo. Might even stop Holyfield.
    Alex Stewart gets kod in 1 round.
    Tommy Morrison might last a couple more if he's running like he did

    Yeah, But he does have to grow his hair back, gt back the Sonny Liston scowl and walk his vicious canines instead of selling those grills on infomercials.

    Patience, experience, mental fortitude, physical attributes of a super soldier, AND Archie Moore in his corner?
