Ali was the greatest HW who ever lived. That is serious praise so don't pretend that I dismiss him; nor do you have to provide a well-tread litany of his accomplishments. I do however, have a low opinion of his division.
Unfortunately for him, the HW division is historically the weakest of the major divisions. That hurts his claim.
