Did I miss anything that you'd like to share. Perhaps some invisible typing?
1. First of all, I wasn't dodging the question since I've already answered it. If it's bullshit or not, we'll never know. For a guy who fought his first 5 or 6 years below 240lbs, I'm saying it would be pretty stupid to think that he'd fight at 245 in a very different era, against faster boxers and probably more powerful punchers. However, it had nothing to do with how would a fantasy matchup between Ali and Lewis look like. So you didn't get my point after commenting about it three times.
2. The original question was: "Could Ali handle the size of Lewis
?" I posted a few examples of guys who were comparable to Lewis' in terms of size, and who Ali boxed against managing to handle their size pretty well. Again, you missed my point.
