head to recite all his thank you's and even karaoke a song after an 11 round fight.
Fury was bigger than the young Foreman, if not the mid aged fat Foreman. Fury doesn't have the punching power of Foreman, but like to think Fury could box as well as Foreman. It would be interesting to image a young Foreman against the current Fury, a power vs skill fight.
The difference between Foreman and Wilder, Foreman didn't need a long windup on this punches, most of Foreman's punch looked like they could fire from very short distance, very compact. Also Foreman seems to be stronger than Wilder, leaning onto Foreman might not work as he could push Fury away. If Fury would to adopt Ali's fight plan and allow himself to be a human punching bag to tire out Foreman, does Fury has as strong a chin as Ali?
On the other hand, if it were a young Foreman in the ring with Wilder, I like to think Foreman could finish off Wilder a lot quicker. Just like Fury, Foreman would not back away from Wilder, thus nullified Wilder's long right hand punch, Foreman never back away from anyone. In short distance, Foreman could like punch hard with those compact but heavy shots, lol Wilder didn't have much of defense, certainly not against the power of Foreman.
