When was George in his prime? I'd say he was in his prime in the 90s. In his early career he said he couldn't control his nervous energy, but he was a lot more composed later on and knew how to conserve his energy. If you combined his youth with his ring IQ of the 90s, then he gives any of today's HW a run for their money.

Wlad is the only one with the technical skills and discipline to avoid trading, but I think he gets caught at some point especially at this stage of his career. Wilder would get drawn into trading and lose, Joshua is very good offensively but would lose a war.

Ortiz has good timing, skills, power. I'm trying to think of a time I've ever seen him hurt in a fight. I might give Ortiz a better chance than the others but not sure on that until seeing him against the top guys.

Good for his time but today he would be a good journeyman at best
Someone like Any Ruiz would easily outbox Forearm, his handspeed alone would turn Foreman's head into a shivel. AJ would knock Foremans head into out of space.

That so called 1 dimensional plodder would have done a complete psyche job on Wlad before the fight, and would have just kept on pouring forward in the ring. It would have been a very hard and dangerous fight for him.

70's Foreman lost to Jimmy Young and gets credited by defeating a older over weight Frazier twice , Who did 70's Foreman actually walk through that would be considered at least 225 today to show he would dominate ?

90's Foreman would fare better but runs into trouble with Klitchko ,Haye , Ortiz and Joshua . The rest like Izu , Whyte , Breazeale , Povetkin, Miller , Pulev, Wilder ,Fury ,and Parker are all questionable bc Foremans k.o percentage went down alot and was about 45% with 225 plus guys . Hes highly over rated ,no matter how likeable he was and fun to watch . His best win was Moorer who was the weakest 90's champion and he lucked out bc he got a title shot after losing to Morrison.

No he wouldnt be the guy to beat it would just be a repeat of the 90's where he gets a few notable wins ,maybe gift decisions and loses to the bigger punchers with refined skills . He would be a top 10 but its subjective where he would rank .

Foreman destroys them ALL, none of them can move like ALI and that is really the only way you beat a PRIME Foreman as Ali and Jimmy Young was able to do. Work all the backfoot and get the big man to move his feet, none of these Heavyweights really have that type of footwork in this era
