Cassius may have been at the 'pinnacle' of his capabilities.
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?
