Id put my money on Ali or Foreman breaking that record if they were born into this era of HW fighters.

I really like the Klitchkos so I have no idea why Im saying negative things but its still true: The stats are fairly meaningless.

I have some reservations about Ali going nearly 7 years in this era without ever being decked. I don't think he'd lose to any of these men either, but he struggled with left hookers at all phases of his career, and this era is loaded with south paws. He'd beat everyone who Klit beat within that time frame, no doubt. But to think that he might get momentarily decked or suffer a flash knockdown against one or two of them is not too far fetched.
