"Big" George Foreman at 6'3" and prime at 220 lbs, his name would more accurately be "Slightly-Less-Than- Average-Sized" George Foreman. Complaring him to todays top ten only Adam Kownacki and Alexander Povetkin are Foreman's proportions, the rest of the pack is 2 to 6 inches taller and 10 to 40 lbs heavier than George.

How would prime George's power and strength afford him against todays top 10?

Who knows. Talent wise hes right there. We'd get to see how effective a Foreman bolo punch would be and if doing his Sonny Liston thing someone who be great personality contrast to Fury, Wilder, Joshua.

Truth is nobody knows how Big George would fare against today's giants. But what we do know for sure is that when he hit fighters of his own era they stayed hit

'Straya, cunt.
Not sure what technical evolution has happened at HW since Foreman days, 70s and 90s.
There were some great offensively technical heavyweight boxers in the ‘90s era, something that’s been lacking a bit in the current era. The technically great cruiserweights we’ve seen move up, though, have shown the disparity in size between the heavyweight fighters of the ‘70s and ‘90s and how much that factor plays.

Yeah totally, can't argue away the size difference. Interested see how Usyk fares when he meets the top giants.

Of the three champs I think Wilder would be the easiest. AJ would cover up and get caught and dropped eventually. He's a big target.

Tyson Fury could win a decision though or at least 1/3. But, unlike Wilder, the thudding power punches would slow him down and well hopefully he could last the distance because he will be fading. On second thought, I could definitely see Fury winning.
