Re: greatest aura of invincibility
By the time of Ali's exile in 1967, he had acquired an aura of invincibility. He had cleaned out the division and there was nobody in sight who figured to have much chance. It lasted through the exile and his comback stoppages of Quarry and Bonavena up until FOTC. He even regained a measure of it after defeating Foreman, at least up until the Young and Norton fights.
