Good thought.
Foreman had less stamina but a lot more power. Holmes had more stamina and was quicker on his feet. He was also a better boxer. But i don't see him do the same thing what Ali did to Foreman. Holmes was a big guy himself so it wouldn't be that hard for brother George to Ko him. Tyson knocked Holmes down a few times. I wouldn't see why Foreman wouldn't knock him down or out.

I say Foreman by TKO in the 4th.

Kid, it real easy, boxing 101.

Best fighters Holmes beat: Cooney, Norton, Shavers

Best fighters Holmes failed to meet in his "weak" era: Frazier, Foreman, Tubbs, Page, Coetzee, Thomas, Dokes, Tucker, Tate, plus he failed to give inexperienced Williams and Witherspoon rematches or the past prime Norton his rematch in a split decision loss.

Now if Holmes had made half those bouts nobody would say he fought in a weak era. Holmes deliberately fought the weakest fighters in a good era, bottomline. George is above him in both his first and 2nd career. I will have to admit Holmes was the better fighter whilst George was retired!

Nope, George caught the undefeated Frazier and won the title. George and Larry are the same age and George caught up with Joe 2x, and Larry? ---------0.0000000x

foreman was up and coming long before holmes was. holmes was highly recognized probably in like '76. by that time frazier was on his way out, so don't bring that age BS cause it holds no bearing here.

How old are you, Jazz?

Your profile does say that you are 33 years of age. But then again, the posts I've seen of yours represent someone who's still in the early puberty stages of life.

So what is it...

Are you actually a young teenager, who thinks he's a big man because he can type a few derogatory words on the keyboard?

Or is the date of birth in your profile accurate, and you are in fact a "REALLY REALLY REALLY" immature 33 year-old?
