While former heavyweight champion and legend of the ring Lennox Lewis has been critical of current heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua lately, one other former heavyweight champion and icon in the sport has had a different opinion.

George Foreman was known as one of the biggest punchers in all of heavyweight boxing.

A man who bludgeoned his opponents with brute power and a simple desire to destroy what was put in front of him.

Foreman never really had much of a game plan other than to knockout his opponent as quick as he could.

A strategy that was wildly successful to be fair.

Speaking on Twitter about what he thought of current heavyweight knockout artist Joshua, Foreman had this to say:

High praise from big George there. Fair play.

Joshua next fights Jarrell Miller on June 1st in New York.
