George Foreman Says Both Tyson Fury & Deontay Wilder Would’ve Beat Him In His Prime (VIDEO)
This Saturday is slated to be one of the biggest matches in boxing in quite some time as Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder get set to face off against each other with the Heavyweight world title on the line at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Former two time heavyweight world champion George Foreman is widely recognized as one of the greatest heavyweights of all time, and for very good reason. TMZ Sports caught up with the legendary boxer, and while he had no clue who would come out victorious between Wilder & Fury, he knew who would win if had faced them in his prime.
“I don’t think I could’ve been able to get a good shot on Tyson Fury at all. He’s too elusive.”
Big George saw a whole different set of problems with Wilder.
“With Deontay Wilder, I’d have to protect myself so much I’d been in danger from round 1 to the final round.”
As a matter of fact, Foreman thinks so highly of the two fighters he says their matchup on Saturday is going to be an EPIC brawl for the ages.
“I can say that, when it does take place, it’ll be the world’s greatest heavyweight matchup. For the world. Not America. A world championship boxing match. And, there’s nothing better you can put together. Not today.”
We’re talking about a man who took down the lies of Smokin’ Joe Frazier with a 2nd round knockout to win the heavyweight title and went head-to-head with Muhammad Ali in “The Rumble in The Jungle.”
Foreman may be humble with his answer, but boxing fans won’t accept his answer.
