Default Re: What if? Ali/Weaver in 1982...

If Ali had fought again in 1982 it sure as hell would not have been against Mike Weaver, and, if in fact they did, it is for the same reason they picked Holmes over Weaver (if it wasn't financial)...
Weaver had a huge left hook. Even at his peak Ali never learned how to block or avoid a left hook, other than leaning back or pushing down on the other guy's neck. With shot reflexes and against a much stronger Weaver, it is a very bad fight for Ali.
