Default Re: Did the exile hurt Ali's legacy or did it help it?

I Remember when Ali returnd from Exile, a lot of Experts were trotting out that old Boxing Maxim " They Never Come Back" Ali's Answer was " They Do if Their Good Enough " and so it subsequently Proved

Pre Exile a lot of Good Judges Felt Ali would Surrender, or Quit if Dragged into a War, the Seventies Proved he had an Iron Will to back up the Style, Ali coming Back from the Layoff, And the Frazier Defeat seemed to enhance his Legacy, its a pity he drifted along and put in some indiffrent performances, instead of putting out his Best Effort each time, However if he did that Many of his Matches would have been deemed ultra mismatches and not attractions, But the Ali Roadshow, keeping Tv and Fans happy by givin them Rounds for their Bucks seemed a happy compromise
