Default Re: Prime: Muhammad Ali .Vs. Larry Holmes

Lost in the one sided bout between Ali and Holmes was that Larry never punched when Ali moved, as slow as that was by Ali. In every round that Ali managed to move Larry methodically followed and did nothing until Ali stopped, then Larry would set up and let his punches go. Having viewed this a number of times this was the case without exception, there is simply no way a younger and much faster moving Ali who punched as he moved would not have taken advantage of this from Larry, and won many rounds because of it, I think clearly enough for the win.
