A single jab or straight right hand just won't be enough to put away Ali.

I can't take your post seriously though due to the fact that you suggest that Ali was unskilled and a poor technician. I will not continue this discussion because the sole purpose of this thread was to provide footage of Ali working on the Heavy Bag.

True, there's a sense of insecurity here e.g Some of these K2 fans strongly imply that both Klitschko's would KO past greats yet quote Mike Tyson as gospel when he suggests that both brothers would be competitive in any era. Hypocrisy.
I'm more of an Ali fan than a Klitschko fan, by far.
Ali, technically was rubbish and did everything wrong. Just look at him reaching with his punches against Norton. Both the Klits would easily outpoint Ali because Ali can only fight on the outside. The Klits are also limited in that they can only fight on the outside but they have height and technical advantages over Ali, they'd only need to throw single punches and stay on the outside to win. Ali just isn't the style to beat a Klitschko, if you know boxing and you don't wear rose colour glasses you know that.
