When did Ali ever face a fighter who waited on him that had the talent and size of Lennox Lewis? Whilst i am inclined to go for Ali in this one stating "If you wait on him, he's gonna pick you apart." is a terrible oversimplification IMO. Comparing Lewis to some of the mugs who waited for Ali is like comparing a crack in the bedroom wall to the grand canyon. What you are overlooking is that Ali preferred his opponent to come after him, and i really can't see Lewis with all that reach running round chasing Ali all fight.
