Wlad could trouble him a bit I think but if he can beat him? I donīt know. Possible.

So, seven fighters at best - no I donīt think Louis or Ali would beat him, both stand a chance of course.
strange that last line. cause ali beats holmes on almost every point. for example : speed, the capacity to take a punch (holmes could take a punch but not as good as ali), ring general ship, etc etc
i think very highly of larry holmes but a prime ali vs a prime holmes is gonna be won by ali most of the times
