Good post. I'ts fair to say George would have kittens with Ali, just as Frazier would with him and Ali would with Joe. But I think Foreman would may have nicked a decision in 1977 had he been granted a rematch around the time of the Shavers fight. Earnie nearly won too, some think he did. I think Young and Norton would have beaten Ali that year also...well, when I say 'beaten', I mean, look the better fighter and score more often until a late rally by the judges sees Ali home.
