Re: Muhammed Ali vs Wladimir Klitchsko - 12 Rounds No Decision
Some of the responses in this thread is really good for the morning laughs.
My take. 1960's Ali up to his exile would win a clear wide UD against both Wlad and Vitali.
The version that fought Frazier, Norton, and Foreman probably has a little more trouble but still has more than enough hand speed and foot speed to out hit Wlad and Vitali.
The only Ali that I would bet against him vs the Klitschkos would be the one who fought Spinks, Berbick and Holmes.
Chris Byrd is featherfisted.
Joe Frazier is far from featherfisted.
I urge those who believe differently of Frazier's power should go seriously talk to George Chuvalo and also in a sense the only man who thrashed him twice, George Foreman. Both Georges will tell you that Frazier wasn't featherfisted. Ali will even tell you that Joe's right hand aside from his left hook was a hard punch too.
