Re: Rate Ali versus Ellis
One of Ali's better post-exile perfomances. Behind Foreman, the Frazier fights, Norton II and Quarry II.
Ellis had all the makings of being a tricky opponent. Technical, cunning counter-punchers had troubled Ali earlier (primarily Jones, but also Folley) and Ellis also knew Ali very well.
Still Ali didn't give him much of a look-in and became the second only to stop him at HW.
