Those have no speculation or rumours. That is 5 fights Ali controversially won and maybe did not deserve to win (Norton + Young especially).
ALL of them are speculation, or flat-out untruths.

Clay got exactly five extra seconds due to the torn glove against Cooper.
Frazier was a very effective foul-artist himself against Ali in all three fights.
Lyle was making no effort to fight back. The stoppage was appropriate.
Ali-Norton III was a close fight. Get out with this "clearly" nonsense.
Ali-Young was a close fight. Get out with this "clearly" nonsense.
