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!
Dude this is extreme .. if Marciano's skin held up, a huge if, it is an interesting fight as Rocky is a murderous puncher with either hand for 15 rounds and could handle Ali's power ... that much is sure .. I do believe Ali has the size, speed , reach, chin and strength to win but lets get real ... if Chuvalo gave him a battle in 66 you don;t think the far better Marciano can do the same ?
