"Danny Mac showed up at Ali's training camp with a 'chicken dressed as a U.S Army soldier' with a little uniform, helmet and gun.

Danny MAC called Ali a coward, draft dodger, racist and communist, a cheating husband, thief, liar, and an uneducated bloke.[/quote]"


Danny MAC got all but the "communist part" right.

That's what 'undefeated' Rudy Clay (Rahman Ali) said in March 1971.

Then Danny Mac, kicked his ass all over the Madison Square Garden ring.

I well recall it,Pepe. The senior Ali brother would have been a slightly different proposition though. Especially with the family revenge angle.

I'm mildly surprised he didn't take on O'Halloran after the big guy retired Ali's brother Rahman. The angle of fraternal revenge against the giant white boy would have sold it. Jack had some decent wins. It would be interesting to have him compare the power of Norton, Lyle, Big Cat, Foreman and Mac Foster (taking on the latter two in back to back knockout defeats). He's active on-line, so he may well have already addressed some of these boxing related questions from fans. (I don't do facebook myself, and possibly never will.)
When Jerry Quarry knocked Bodell out in one round in London,a reporter asked Jerry after the fight "did you find Bodell awkward?" Quarry replied "Well he sure fell awkward!"

Frazier beat Ali whenever he gets the shot imo.

Not against the tough Ali we never saw in 68-69. Granted a good fight and a tough fight for Ali but fairly easier than the FOTC IMO.

Harold Johnson could have given Ali a competetive fight for a few rounds.

Harold Johnson would have beaten Cassius Clay in 1962.

That's why the Louisville Sponsoring Group avoided him.

Harold was 'on-the-list' to fight Sonny Liston in September 1963.

Many fighters that Clay avoided, the list is unbelievably long....

frazier would lose v 1967/8 ali. with no exile he woulda gotten better not worse and in his last fight v folley he was showing one shot accurate timing ko's. ali actually had a great ko record before exile.

Frazier was more hungry than ali and he holds a stylistic advantage due to the sum of his parts.

There are plenty of things that could happen in 2 years. But the only way Clay would stand a real chance against Frazier was if he fought him early in his career, unexperienced. All the dancing and running in the world wouldn't really help Ali in my opinion, since Joe was good enough to get past his jab, and had the power to end Clay's night for good with a single left hook.
