George Foreman: Joshua vs Wilder Would Be Biggest HW Fight Ever
George Foreman knows a thing or two about big fights. He faced Muhammad Ali in The Rumble In The Jungle, in front of 60,000 fans in Kinshasa, Zaire, back in 1974. The fight is regarded by many fans as the one of the greatest boxing matches of all time. Ali famously won via an eighth round knockout.
Speaking to TMZ Sports, Foreman said he hoped that Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will face each other in the ring.
Foreman, the former heavyweight boxing champion of the world, also said that he believes that if Joshua and Wilder do eventually meet in the ring, it will be the biggest heavyweight boxing contest ever.
“If Joshua and Wilder fight, it will be the biggest heavyweight fight of all time.”
Due to the usual politics and different TV deals in boxing, it may be a while before we see Joshua vs Wilder, Joshua vs Fury or the Wilder vs Fury rematch.
Wilder is coming off of a crazy first round knockout last weekend over Dominick Breazeale. You can see what Fury had to say about the knockout here and what he had to say about Wilder and Joshua here.
Joshua and Fury both fight in June, against Andy Ruiz and Tom Schwarz.
