Ali at his best- with help from his friends.

All the bouts you mention were either pre prime or post Manilla. None of them were what may have been considered 'legacy' bouts,which occured during the 1964-75 phase of his career,imo.

The Jones and Shavers bouts were very much 'close but no cigar' for Doug and Earnie. Muhammad was indeed lucky getting the verdicts in the Young and Norton III fights.
