    Wilder KOs real HWs and they even outweight him.

    Mike Tyson, Foreman and other boxers KOd CWs (by todays standards)

    Good night.

    no they aren't, he's kayoing guys who aren't accomplished, don't have reps. George was beating up guys like Joe Frazier who beat everyone around at the time. I'd say it's more impressive to hit a dude so hard that he lifts up off the canvas. George would literally make you think he was going to seriously maim someone, that's why Chuvalo's manager stopped their fight when he did.

    Mike Tyson never KOd a guy like Fury.

    Hell ... I would favour Fury vs Mike Tyson.

    Wilder was 208-209 lbs vs 260+ lbs Fury and he still put him down.

    Fury fought a street fighter, but Wilder fights like a boxer now.

    Wilder by brutal 5 round KO

    Wilders right hand is probably more powerful than any single punch from Foreman or Tyson, but those two had a wider range of tools to hurt you with.

    Also i'm not sure there is much of a difference in the average size of HWs now compared to Tysons era, and Tyson was like 5'9 fighting those guys. Your criticism might apply to (young) Foremans era more but then its worth bearing in mind that even though the average size was smaller back then, the overall skill level was higher.

    There was nearly a 30lb weight difference between Tyson and Bruno and a 5inch height difference

    Actually you know what....i only looked at the first fight weight.

    2nd fight was indeed a much bigger difference

    But that has nothing do with their chins. Wilder is the ONLY fighter with consistent 1-punch KOs among the HWs. Not even Shavers had that.

    That said, Mike Tyson would slaughter him.

    Can't you keep the Wilder/Fury posts in the same thread given they're all comments that would fit there? As opposed to creating a new thread each time? It's kind of shitting all over the front page at this point. Thanks in advance.

    Also, prime Tyson KOs Wilder or Fury, prime Foreman likely kills both in the ring.
