Re: How Come Ali Has Never Been TKO'd from a Bodyshot?
Tough bastard. He had incredible will to resist succumbing to hard punches.
But there really is no need to put the body through that sort of punishment so many times. He pissed blood after some of those fights. His liver and kidneys took took much punishment, just like his brain did.
It's one thing toughening the abs with medicine ball, but it's quite another to let sparring partners and opponents wail away on the sides and kidneys like that.
The fact that Ali is still living this day is testament to his toughness, but the condition he's been living in the last 30 years shows that even 'super human' has it's limitations.
