I assume bias does come into play, even though I try and guard against it....I personally don't like Ali (As a frazier/Philly guy I am pretty certain that, that is illegle anyway)...but I don't think I overly favor guys that I like (Outside of eubank whom I am always in the minority picking).

I rate Ali # 2 ATG and although I have never really done an ATG hypothetical H2H list, he would probably be top 3 and definately top 5...I favor only Frazier, Marciano & Louis over Ali (Due to styles...Louis is the only guy I call greater)...I see this fight as 50/50 and only voted Holmes because I figured very few others would. I think this is about as close a fight as their is to call (well along with Frazier/Marciano and Liston/Foreman).
