Well, Ali himself, back in 1976 in a program with Howard Cosell in which he judged the other great heavyweights, said he "honestly thought Marciano was better than Frazier," Frankly, I see no reason for him to make such a statement, as it cuts against his "I am the greatest" view, if he didn't believe it.
