My pick would be Lennox by decision. But George was tough. What are your thoughts?

Yup.  Mercer was better at his best, but Chuvalo is really difficult to put out.
There could e a mercy stoppage a la Foreman, but more likely a clear decision.

Lennox by decision but George would not make it easy for him. We've seen what can happen when Lennox takes his eye off the ball. George briefly stunned Ali with one punch and could do far worse to Lennox. George didn't stop coming forward. He would be a tougher fight for Lennox than Tua was.

Chuvalo is the kind of guy that if boxing has unlimited rounds, would be ATG as well.

Yeah Marciano said something like he would be the GOAT if all matches were 100 rounds, lol!

Some say Marciano was the GOAT anyway because of his record. I don't agree with this but he could already make that claim.

I never saw Rocky tire in the ring but it would be interesting if he fought during the eras of Jeffries and Johnson when fights did go 100 rounds and more.

As for the thread, Lennox had an accurate jab. He may open a cut and beat George by TKO the way a young Joe Frazier did.

Lennox might well slash him open.  Anyway the size disparity with Lewis having so much skill & power. would make it very tough for Rocky.

i did not know for years that many of those rounds were very short: they lasted until someone was knocked down OR someone took a knee.  Like the Epic 75 round bout between Sullivan & Kilrain.
The former threw up & the latter offered to make it a draw-Sullivan was unused to the lacohol between rounds then, though was an alcoholic much of his life-but he refused.

It was only as close as that because Jilrain kept taking a knee to avoid getting brained.
They went until the fight Doctor told his corner "your man will die" if the fight continued.
Which was still north of 2 hours, but if you do the math, would ave been about 5 hours if all rounds were 3 minutes + 1 minute between rounds.
