The former Cruiserweight champion is in no doubt who the hardest puncher in the history of the sport is.
Appearing on Carl Froch’s YouTube channel – Froch On Fighting the pair were discussing who would win a fantasy fight between Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali.
Tony Bellew shared his assessment on the fight. He said,
“I absolutely love and adore Mike Tyson but I’m never going against Muhammad Ali. It’s wrong. I just can’t do it. Of course Tyson could have knocked him out but chances are he wouldn’t have.”
Bellew then moved on to the hardest hitter- George Foreman. He continued,
“But listen, the greatest puncher that boxing has ever seen couldn’t knock Muhammad Ali out and that’s George Foreman. He is the greatest puncher boxing has ever seen and known. His list of knockouts is just unbelievable.”
Foreman knocked out a staggering 68 opponents in his 81 bouts with his last knockout victory being over Michael Moorer when he shocked the world to win heavyweight gold aged 45.
