David Tua is the only heavyweight that rivals him in terms of Durability, but even he was some level's below Foreman 'The strongest most durable heavyweight of all-time' a juggernaut.

It was also natural strength, it was not built up from any highly designed scientific training program or supplement regime 'There was some real great athletes at heavyweight in the 70's'.

Foreman was never knocked down once after his return despite facing multiple champions. That's pretty remarkable.

George had plenty of gripping strength. You can't punch hard without a solid grip. I never saw a milking muscle on George, though. It is right in the crotch of the wrist and pops out like a marble under the skin. When you've got that, you can pulp a young potato, by buggery.

It's history etched in stone!
Except that Clancy told us George was a broken man.

Ali rebounded from Frazier. Patterson rebounded from Ingo. Walcott rebounded from Charles. Louis rebounded from Schmeling.

Great fighters aren't invincible. They just learn from their failures. George couldn't do that.

Yeah. Funny how that happens when you have a meticulously crafted career.

Even Floyd would blush.

Watching him struggle through Moorer was pretty hilarious, too.
