    Tony Tubbs, Buster Mathis had some moves as well as his son, Old Larry, Old George, I guess Mercer was kinda chubby, HW Toney, Galento was fast, also Andy Ruiz.

    Close thread.

    "I'm in great shape...round!"

    He must have said it a hundred times, and I never stopped laughing.

    Andy Ruiz Jr is obviously the most successful.

    He effectively turned the ultimate fat heavyweight fantasy into a reality.

    Fat George was actually in better shape than the likes Whyte, Ruiz, Kownaki etc are today

    No argument here. He was heavy but clearly fit. The thing that struck me about 80/90's George was how relaxed he was in the ring. Never burned up his energy unnecessarily.
