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.
I know everyones got their opinion but how can you think marciano could beat Holmes and Ali couldnt? i know what your getting at with styles and **** and have my own opinion on it, but the Ali of late 66 is a different kettle off fish. Nobody, and i mean nobody, would have beaten that man at that time. He was just too good imo
