Of COURSE he had better chin and punch resistance than his 60's self! Anyone who thinks that 60's Ali could take anywhere near as much damage is a bloody idiot!
Janitor you have absolutely no clue about boxing or anything! I'm surprised you can even manage to feed yourself and aren't bedded up in hospital on a drip!
The fact that you think that you can tell anything form a, b, c, d, e or f, proved that you know next to about boxing.
You have got a lot of misconceptions about boxing firmly entrenched in your mind, and untill you start to question them, you will never learn anything.
