If he didn't lose to Ali or to Young, he wouldn't transform into a freaking pastor (after being a symbol of a bad ass) and come back 10 years after retiring as a completely different person to eventually regain the title exactly 20 years after he lost. in those same trunks he wore that day, by the way of outsmarting (being outsmarted 20 years before) and KTFO a young champion that could have been his son. Are you kidding me???
Also, I think he would beat Ali in the rematch but it doesn't matter... You couldn't write a better scenario than life did about his career.
Well, not getting a rematch did make it all more beautiful in the end...
