Now to clearify, I haven't a clue as to who would win.. Muhammad Ali will always be the better fighter in my mind, from the stand point of having greater accomplishments and doing better against the rest of the field. But I'm not confident in picking a winner between the two of them.
Well, if we're being honest, that also seems like dodging the question to me. He asked about Ali being able to handle Lewis' size, and I came with examples of boxers who fought Ali and who were either taller than Lennox, or similar to him in terms of weight and height.
