The oldest heavyweight champion in history George Foreman knows more than most about heavyweight title fights having been part of some of the iconic moment’s not only in the division’s history but the sport of boxing’s history — period.
Foreman is still a keen boxing fan to this day and although not engaged in punditry for a network, he prefers to speak to fans direct on his social media account regarding big fights coming up.
One such fight that has come in for a lot of heat online is heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua’s next bout at Madison Square Garden in the summer against New Yorker Jarrell Miller.
Speaking on his Twitter account Foreman has been one of the few less critical of it however and actually spoke well of Miller’s chances in the fight:
“Miller is a very good body puncher, the likes Joshua has never faced. A big guy as well.”
While no one is going to argue with big George, Joshua has started out as a massive favorite in the fight.
The fight is set for June 1st while Joshua’s two main rivals Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder look set to an agreement very soon for a rematch.
