    Default George Foreman vs. Earnie Shavers.

    The 2 hardest hitting HWs of all time. This would be a shootout.

    I lean towards Foreman, but anything could happen if Shavers landed a bomb on Foreman's chin.

    Think Foreman was a better free swinger with a plus in physicality. Shavers for all his one punch pop was hurt by some lighter touches far more often.

    Big George takes one much better than Shavers. Foreman bombs him out.

    Foreman did have a sold chin and will survive the shoot out and win.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    How mobile was Shavers?

    Foreman did well if his opponent acted like a punchbag, i,e. stand right i front of him.

    Old Foreman weathers an early storm, too big and too cagey. He covers up using the Archie Moore cross arm defence and then comes out of his shell to land a pinpoint right to KO Earnie in the 6th.

    Young George obliterates Shavers within three rounds.

    According ro Boxing Legenda on youtube, Shavers has a weak chin, so early doors against Foreman
