Lewis was put down by far lesser punchers than Foreman as well.
As far as Foreman being put down by Ali and Young, at that point of exhaustion that Foreman was at, a light wind would have blown him over.

But Lewis, in bouts with Bruno, Klitschko and even Rahman and McCall when presured, he stood and fought. Foreman was not Tua and was very adept at cutting off the ring in his prime, Ali and Norton attempted movement but even the great mover Ali was forced to the ropes.
I'm not bashing Lewis by no means, his legacy is secure. I just think a prime Foreman would do a better job landing than Tua or Tyson. And history tells me when George Landed..... well you know!

Foreman pre-Ali was really a beast, I thought Ali adopted the rope a dope tactic mainly because what he really wanted to do was not working, Foreman when he was younger was also surprisingly quick with his feet, he cut off the ring and got into position very well. I think that version of Foreman would've knocked Lewis out.

And older Foreman, the one who was maybe a fight or two away from fighting Lewis, had he gotten the decision against Briggs, would've stood very little chance of winning.
