Default Re: Could Ali Get Away With This Against Wlad?

I used to believe that peak Ali would destroy Wlad, and I still believe he could probably do a number on the WK who was fighting in the early part of the last decade. But since Wlad has aligned with Steward he's become a different fighter in terms of approach and a better fighter for it.

At this point, my inclination is that this a nip and tuck affair where each round is decided by only a couple of clean punches. Since Ali was a master at catching the eyes of judges with his flurries, I'm inclined to give him the edge and predict that he'd fashion a close but clear UD over an always dangerous Wlad.
