I was chatting to my martial arts instructor, and we started wondering what was George Foreman’s punching power? Does anyone know of an objective way of measuring it? if so, what would his power have been in his prime?
Then, we got to comparing Foreman’s power to Tyson’s power (both in their prime). If you compare their records (victories vs. victories by KO), and it seemed Foreman had the slightly superior power, yet watching Tyson fights, I had the impression that Tyson had the superior power.
Now, Holyfield is the only fighter common to both Foreman and Tyson. But both of them were in different points in their career. So an accurate comparison can’t really be made based on Holyfield testimony (although if you can find his testimony, that’d be helpful, too).
To sum up, I’m looking for objective measurements of power for both Foreman, and Tyson.
