Re: Holmes (early 80s) vs. Ali (late 60s)
I think Holmes by decision. I feel that his jab would disrupt Ali's rhythm. I guses the comeback to that would be;well Liston couldn't disrupt his rhythm. That's more than a fair point, and I have no troubles with anyone picking Ali.
I also think Larry Holmes was the marginally bigger puncher, but only because he seemed to hav 'heavier hands'. If there are any comebacks to this post I have no doubt they will be more than fair, it's as close a fight as you can get IMO.
