So Ali would be an athletic superheavyweight weighting 230-240 lbs?
That's quite a lot for a guy who started in the olympics as a light heavy.
Also Ali could fight in the cruiser division if he was active today.
When he was 24 he made 201 lbs in the Cooper fight, Haye got in the ring at around 210 lbs.
He was 212 lbs against frazier in 74, surely the simplest weight draining and staying fit can keep him in the cruiserweight division as long as he wants to be.
