Agree for the most part. Ali was unorthodox, but he was so quick and fast he got away with it more often than not, except when he fought skilled jabbers in Jones, Norton, Young, and Lyle...then he looked very beatable.

Later in his career, Ali became a very good technical clincher, and a pretty good counter puncher.
