Muhammad was pretty unorthodox as far as TEXTBOOK boxing went. The old timers claimed that he that he did a lot of things wrong. His natural gifts which were speed and timing made him a great fighter. Also he had a cast iron jaw could adapt to different challenges in a fight.

Jose Torres put it perfectly when he mentioned that Ali was n't as good,technically,as many champions in heavyweight history,but he could n't see any of them actually beating Muhammad.
