Default Re: What fights can I see the best version of Ali/Clay there ever was?

Unfortunately, we only got to see a little over 1-minute of him.

I wonder if Clay was "perfectly conditioned" for that fight.

It's a known fact he didn't like to train.

Would he have gotten in perfect shape knowing the fight would only last a couple of minutes?
