And Duane Bobick wasn't that bad of a fighter, despite what people think.

Lets not forget, it was Muhammad Ali who pulled out of a fight with Duane Bobick,
when he would have made a boat-load of money.

And, he also pulled out of a fight with Lorenzo Zanon, because his group thought
Zanon was too slick.

Not saying that Bobick would have won, but styles make fights.
Ali's hand injuries were under control post 74 ... they did not get worse ... he beat Frazier and Foreman ... R u implying Ali was at all afraid of Bobick ? I never heard of any serious negotiations for a Zanon fight either ...
