Default Re: ALI's (Possible Opponents 1967 thru 1970)

An Ali global roadshow probably could of taken in Greg Peralta at Luna Park
- Greg had Drawn with Bonavena so had some Merritt.

Perhaps a bit too early for Jeff Merritt, a young hot-shot who Blooded Ali's nose in Sparring,(circa 1970) forcing Ali to Cut Loose and steady Jeff, Breaking Shavers Jaw and Koing Terrell and Stander were a little way off

Interestingly Ali every so Often spoke of wanting Revenge on Kent Green for an Ametuer stoppage defeat , ( ali's only stoppage loss until Holmes ) - maybe the revenge angle could of ran, if Kent was willing to come out of recent retirement ( but behind the scenes Ali and Kent were onfriendly terms) .
