Default Re: Muhammad Ali 1974 v Vitali Klitschko 2004

Agree with those who say it would take a 1960's rendition of Ali to beat Vitali ( and Wlad for that matter. ) Muhammad was still awesome in the 1970's and a head to head monster at that.. But Vitali is a different kind of animal from the ones that he faced during that era. Going through spurts of flicking the jab while taking periodic breaks to stop and hold, aren't going to cut it for Ali here... He'd have to use constant movement at full speed for the duration of the fight, and Ali from 1974 onward was no longer capable of this...
