Default Re: What if? Ali/Weaver in 1982...

If Weaver doesn't stop him, then he'd win a decision.
Ali was shot and Parkinson ridden by 1980 against Holmes. Even earlier. This would be crazy. I don't believe Ali thought of coming back around 1986. His fight with Berbick in 81 was embarrassing and terrible as it was. Ali speech and Parkinson had picked up and affected his movement and slurred his speech even more by this point.

Can anyone confirm or officially denounce this crazy idea?
