Default Re: 71 Ali vs Marciano

I believe a 60's Ali at his athletic peak would prevail, but not post-layoff... Ali from '71 onward relied more on the ropes, while Marciano was a far more damaging puncher than Frazier, and would keep coming...and coming...and coming. The sheer roughness of Marciano helps him take a points win, while Ali is more bruised up than he was after FOTC.
