George Foreman’s INSANE punching power on display
George Foreman is the former two time heavyweight boxing champion of the world who is known for his incredible punching power. He is consistently ranked among the heaviest punchers of all time if not THE heaviest puncher of all time.
In the following video we see a young George Foreman hitting the heavy bag and it is almost frightening how many power he is able to generate with his punches. Notice, it seems almost effortless to him as well. He is very relaxed when throwing his strikes and maybe that has an effect on how he hits with so much power.
Towards the end of the video when his trainer is holding the bag in place for him he is unable to hang on as Foreman is hitting it so hard. It is also incredible to believe how Muhammad Ali took similar abuse from Foreman in their epic fight yet somehow survived and pulled off one of the greatest victories of all time especially against such a dangerous guy like Foreman.
George Foreman first won the heavyweight title against fellow hard hitter Joe Frazier in just two short rounds before losing that same title to Ali the following year. Foreman wasn’t done yet though and mounted an incredible career comeback after being retired for 10 years that saw him recapture the lineal title at age 45.
Compared to the vast majority of fighters, Foreman has also had a a lot of success outside the ring most notably as an entrepreneur for his line of nifty grills.
