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.
Again, this was with Giachetti in the Holmes corner, not Futch. With Eddie's training and instructions, a match between these two would have always unfolded very differently.
