I agree with everything you said about Foreman ( except that he'd always beat Tyson).
I have watched Smokin' Joe vs Foreman.
My view that Tyson is a much more formidable opponent than Frazier: faster, harder to hit, heavier, with a bigger arsenal of punches. Frazier had a monster hook, but lacked the combination punching of Tyson. But I think the biggest difference is in defence. So I would say that Foreman never faced a swarmer of Tyson's calibre.
Edit to add: oops, just read Lee's comment which says pretty much the same thing
Question for you, Trevor: which boxers do you think would really give Foreman a hard time - any era? Apart from Ali.
