    Foreman was exhausted in any fight that went rounds back then.

    nobody brings up which is odd how George was hurt from the 1st strong right by ron close to the end and hurt every round from then he was stumbling all over

    Mike never was hurt that early and all over the ring like that which proves mike was way tougher

    In order for this to be a fair fight Foreman has to able to see Tyson's prime fights. After all Tyson has seen all of George's prime. That causes us to take the George we have now and put him back into his prime. And the same goes for Mike. This cannot be George from back then against the Tyson who saw George's fights from back then with George in the dark about Mike. The playing field has to be level. George will know about all of Tyson's career and about all of his own. And the same goes for Mike. I think George will win, by the way, but it will not be an easy fight for him.

    One of the many generally ignored problems with fantasy fights.

    I do indeed. Prime Tyson has the speed, power and finishing skills to get Foreman out of there. Lyle, who had power akin to Tyson's but was greatly inferior in just about every other category, nearly KO'd Big George. The big question is can Tyson take Foreman's power punches, and I think judging by Mike's fights with guys like Ruddock and Bruno that he absolutely can. Also, a lot of George's slow, telegraphed punches will be dodged by Tyson, as Mike in his prime exhibited great head movement.

    im glad you still can see legend
    but your wrong mike wouldnt take George punches sense he wouldnt be getting hit much

    nobody ever brings up which is odd how ron hurt George with the first strong right ij the first round close to before the bell and had him all over the place

    and after that round George was hurt and all over the place in each round which means that quote of George being real tough is just that a myth

    mike never was hurt like that from the 1st and then after each round hurt and all over the place

    when he was caught by bruno a man underrated for his power who hit real hard caught mike mike kept his balanced and recovered

    razor hit harder then ron by a good amount if we take him and put him in the ring with George no doubt he would have dropped George

    I dont get this odd acting blind stuff for years still from these people it's so obvious mike would dodge duck and counter George slow easy to read punches and put him down

    why say George could beat mike in his young form which was sloopy
    wasted punches
    wide angled punches
    way easier to hurt shown by ron
    fighting the wrong way just slugging
    no timing of punches

    for George to hit mike more he would have to fight like his old self
    which was better punch tech
    less wasted punches
    less punches cause it allows himself to be countered
    and fighting from distance like a buster and maintain that

    it is no reason anybody should say George could win after these many years it never should have been said at any time cause it always would be a mismatch going off of the stuff I said which is all fact for how Mike could only be hit let alone beat and fact for George flaws as young and advantages as old

    Agreed. Especially when we're talking about Tyson. I give him better than even odds at blowing out basically any HW who ever lived, if they haven't seem him fight before. The opening blitzkrieg is just too much for anyone not expecting it (and indeed, was too much for many who knew to expect it).

    Both fighters are overrated, but in my opinion even if Mike is able to beat Foreman, he'll have to undergo a lot of punishment from Foreman.

    Ah, but could either man have beaten Usyk?

    That's the true question here.
