Re: Prime: Muhammad Ali .Vs. Larry Holmes
Ali wins. What are the tools Holmes possessed which would have pulled off the victory? Holmes had an excellent jab but not good enough to pepper Ali. Holmes would not have been able to stop Ali even though Holmes had a good right hand. Ali was way too elusive with an iron chin. This fight would have gone like most of Ali's fights in his prime. Ali would have slowly built points and weakened his opponent with his jab (yes, it would have found Holmes) and then he would either stop his opponent through an accumulation of punches in the late middle to late rounds, or he wins a decision (more likely against Larry Holmes but a stoppage possible).
