Default Re: Could Ali handle the size of a Lewis?

Ali could handle the size as could Louis, Dempsey,Marciano and Frazier,and most of them have done so. The thing is could he beat a great big man such as Lewis or the Klitschko's, fighters who have had great amateur experience and learned the trade by making mistakes in the Pro arena and overcoming...Good question....How do great fighters overcome the advantages of another great fighter. I would think they take advantage of their own advantages and in Ali's case it would be speed of hand and movement as well as strength of mind and will to win.

My feeling is that he would do well but Lewis and the K's are a different breed of big man, another level...that being said, when great fights great, sometimes little intangibles can make a difference.
