The Rumble in the Concrete Jungle!
A 33 year old Ali of Manila, fighting a young 21 year old Tyson of Atlantic City, And this Superfight is in teh mecca of boxing Madison Square Garden in New York, for teh unified titles. Ali was 8 yrs past-prime in teh Thrilla, But he did TKO a relentless Smokin Joe. Will this Ali KO this Tyson? Ali has stamina, strength, heart, chin, toughness, ring iq, height, reach, weight advantages. Tyson has only speed And power advantages. Fight is only 12 Rounds, cos Tyson never did fight 15 Rounds in his life. Does Ali make Tyson get gassed extra quick, by leaning on him And pushing down proper hard on his chunky neck?? Will Ali keep Tyson safely on teh outside And off-balance with his long jab, like Douglas did? Does Ali win psychologically before teh fight with his baiting, taunts, verbal-bullying, mindgames And v.nasty insults?? I did guess a few funny things what Ali could say to mentally dent Tyson.
'I'm gonna jab, jab, jab that ghetto thug, till he looks like a ugly pug!'
'It's gonna be a corker, when i get the gangster, calling himself a New Yorker!'
'I'm gonna show that big dumb ape, there ain't nothing funny about rape!'
'I will be the mugger, when i fight that slugger!'
