could someone with the same punching power as a prime george foreman be able to hurt, floor, or ko foreman?

also, could someone with the same handspeed as a prime muhammad ali cut-up, confuse, or hit ali at will?

i'm just wondering, cause we all know that george had a granite chin and ali has lightning fast head reflexes. :boxing:

foreman could definetly be hurt but ali would'nt be confused one bit by someone with equal speed floyd patterson was hell of a fast too and ali coped with him

The answer is no to both.

Ali faced Floyd Patterson, who had equal handspeed - and wasn't troubled.

Foreman could be troubled by power - as could everyone - but it would need to be a skilled power puncher - Louis, Liston etc. I dont think Shavers would trouble him much.

Ali struggled more with pressure and a jab, rather than speed.

Ali might struggle if he faced another jab as good as his own. It was evident in several of his 1960's fights that someone with a good, quick jab could stifle him a little bit. The problem was that these fighters didn't follow that jab with enough pressure. Had Patterson or Frazier a jab like Ali's, ol' Cassius might have faded into the distance.

Ali vs. Ali would have been terribly boring.

Foreman vs. Foreman would have been hilarious; two slow moving mummies waylaying each other.

Foreman vs Foreman would be like watching two tanks blow each other apart.

The ring would shake when these two tanks came together!
