Re: 71 Ali vs Marciano
I've watched virtually everything there is to see on both men and it's a mismatch.
None of the men Marciano defended against come close to a '71 Ali and Marciano would be cut to ribbons. The only men to trouble Ali, in working order, would be a prime Tyson, Holmes, Holyfield, Lewis or Bowe.
The great champions giving away 30+lbs in weight, against Alli, are out of their depth and nostalgia isn't a sufficient enough excuse to say otherwise.
Johnson, Louis, Marciano etc? Toast!
