    This is almost as dumb as the Earnie Shavers article that called him feather fisted

    Well in this video he does explain his logic and give hard stats that you can't disagree with.

    The foundation of his logic is flawed, therefore I didn't pay the video any mind

    You can't prove something like that statistically.

    Mike Tyson had power, speed, and a good defense, prime I am speaking about. Prime George Foreman had brutal power,and size, but lacked defense. He had a pawing left jab, and was ponderous. What he did best was swarm all over an opponent, not giving him a chance to set up. When he fought, he smothered his adversaries with his wild blows. Tyson bobbed and weaved with that defense and combination punching invented for him by Kevin Rooney.

    I’ll take Holyfield’s word for it.

    Unless they both hit the same machine, under the almost same circumstances and variables for both, they it can't be proven statistically. Even then you can't say something definitive one way or another because the variables are still not likely the same.

    15 year old Tyson was a finished product?

    Tyson hit as a moving Ferrari, Foreman like a truck. The effect was the same more or less. Tyson was faster than Foreman, Foreman had more weight. To understand better it could be applied the Einstein formula which says: Energy=(mass or weight) x (light speed)^2
    In few words if Valuev had been faster, with all the weight he had (330 pounds!) he would have been the most powerful HW ever without prejudice to the fact that everyone can be knocked out from an opponent even the hardest puncher ever.

    Ill take the man who actually got hit by both opinion thank you and he wouldn't have a reason to lie since he defeated both. That man is Evander Holyfield. Holyfield said Foreman hit harder. Thats good enough for me.

    Ditto to what most people say. If you wanna use statistics, Marciano is the hardest punching heavyweight because of his ko ratio.

    We've had someone who fought both, Holyfield who said Foreman hit harder. While it's true both were past their primes, Tyson was 30 and Foreman was 42. To say a Foreman 18 years past his prime hits harder than a Tyson 7 years removed is insane and shows Foreman is definitely the harder hitter.

    Here's a stunning fact for all you knowitalls: Tyson has more 1 punch KO's than Foreman. Despite facing less opposition and facing better opposition.

    Prime for prime they were close to the same weight, but I think Foreman did have more punching power.
