Good to see you appreciating the greatest heavyweight of the past third of a century!
You do overstate the case slightly.
Ali and Louis were both better (i.e. They would beat him MOST of the time)
MAYBE Foreman too (1973 version).
But no-one else.
As your post points out, his resume is outstanding, he beat every man he ever faced. I concede that he has two blemishes on his great career but he AVENGED both losses in spades. He moved very well for such a big man and he had one punch KO power.
His legacy is diminished by many jingoistic American fans (He wasn't American.)
He is the greatest ever non-American heavyweight and third (or maybe fourth) on my alltime heavyweight list.
