Re: Muhammad Ali 1974 v Vitali Klitschko 2004
Ali from the Thrilla would not have to deal with a fighter that was coming straight at him like Frazier or even Foreman. He would be dealing with a fighter that would be trying to out box him. Vitali is considerably slower than Ali foot and hand. I haven't seen Vitali kick it into a higher gear.
I think Vitali makes the mistake of letting Ali find a rhythm. Once that happens, Ali will then find out his timing, and then once that happens, I think Ali is able to hit Vitali whenever he wants to. Vitali was a good fighter but not that good to give this extremely experienced fighter Ali a whole he hasn't seen or dealt with successfully.
If Ali gets in the mood I can see a KO.
'74 Ali UD 15
