Certainly there would be contenders, with possibly a couple of exceptions like Mathis. He gassed after five or six rounds. I don't think he would have gotten close to a championship fight in those days.
My point is I don't pick anybody on that list as a favorite over the four I listed, and these are contenders, not champions, and their resumes are better than Ali's second string resume.
