Default Howcome George Foreman never fought Earnie Shavers?

So I was running through boxrec thinking this fight would have happened and it would have been a classic like Foreman Lyle.

So why didn't this fight ever happen between 2 monster hitters???
Seems illogical.

Come on , it would have been a close fight, with Shavers in with a good chance of stopping Foreman.

George Chuvalo fought both Shavers and Foreman and said that Shavers hit harder than Foreman

Shavers rose to the top after George retired(1st time). By the time George returned 10 years later Earnie was done. The timing was off.

This was a classic fight in the making that the whole world missed out on.
Definitely would have been a FOTY candidate.

Shavers might hit harder (from what fighters who faced both foreman and shavers have said), but he didnt have the chin to stand up against foreman, foreman KO inside of 4.

On a good night Shavers can win,
if Ron Lyle, knocked Foreman down twice, Shavers can have just as much as success if not more.

Shavers could almost knock out anybody, but I believe George would stop anybody that tried to fight him, even Shavers.

Jerry Quarry, who barely weighed 200 pounds, ko'd Shavers in one round. foreman destroys him, without a doubt. Other than Norton, name the HOF fighter Shavers beat?
