Ali had a long carrer , where Ray had a short carrer, for me I think that Ray was around the perfect time for his abilities. He was always going to break down early, if it was not for the ritirements and comebacks he would of fought good comp' regulary and some one would of givin him a real tough fight and ruined him alot eariler. The fake retirements and comebacks saved him in a way. A guy like Ray should not be KO'd by a past prime feather fisted former featherweight, even if he was shot.
