It goes bad for Tua.

Ali would hit him at will.

Tua would last the distance due to his great chin.

But he would lose every minute of every round.

I'll tell you how it goes. It goes terribly bad for Mr. Tua. I don't think Tua would win a single round. I think it would go the distance without Tua being hurt, as he has an excellent chin. Ali W 10, 12 or 15.

These days Tua would win !
1971 - Tua would be KOd round 6.
Tua was never close to worldclass - he was a contender missing his chance when he got it !

It would go the distance, whatever it was set at. Lot's of guys with half of Tua's punch resistance went the limit with Ali. Ali wins a lopsided decision of course.

There's more of a chance of Butterbean leaping over the top rope before a fight and doing a backflip after a fight than Ali ko'ing Tua.

I think its unlikely that Tua would land anything meaningful, while Ali picks him off with quick combos.

I would pick the Ali of the Berbick fight to beat Tua.

My how low Tua's stock has fallen. Hard to believe that this is same guy who looked like such a monster vs Ruiz and Moorer.

But that was the problem. You are going to need to look more than awesome for 20 to 30 seconds to be beat an Ali.

Tua, to be fair to him, carried his power, and had an excellent run of late stoppages; sometimes when behind. But still this is Ali we are talking about, not Maskaev or Rahman...

Ali fought with his chin up, his hands down and he leaned away from incoming punches. When Danell Nicholson used those Ali tactics, this is what happened.

I think comparing Danell Williamson to Muhammad Ali is completely reasonable.
