True, but what gave him an edge was that he didn't load up. Combine that with his blistering speed, and you have a semi-powerful punch that does a lot of damage because the opponent doesn't see it coming.

Poetry in motion.


FUTCH WAS SPOT ON

He would beat Wlad 8-9 times out of 10, the difference in levels between the two is very wide and not in Wlad's favour

Terrell was a mean machine.

great jab.
great poise
great footwork.
the one arm bandit.

The great 1960's.

He's good at other things and he's athletically gifted, he's not a particularly skilled fighter or a good technician.

I disagree, Ali would look like a little boy against the Klits. The Klits are only good on the outside, the range that Ali likes to fight at. I think someone like Frazier or Tyson would have a far better chance at beating a Klitschko than Ali. Styles make fights. To beat a Klit you have to work your way inside, that's not something Ali ever did.

It's testimony to Ali's greatness that he still frustrates the hell out of trolls so desperately trying to detract from him, all these years later.

Ali has the greatest footwork in Heavyweight History. Your overrating the K2 and underrating Ali. He won't have to work his way inside, he literally can cruise to a points victory. The Wlad-Wach bout showed that Wlad is unable to put long punch combinations together even against a slow footed giant like Wach. A single jab or straight right hand just won't be enough to put away Ali.

I can't take your post seriously though due to the fact that you suggest that Ali was unskilled and a poor technician. I will not continue this discussion because the sole purpose of this thread was to provide footage of Ali working on the Heavy Bag.

True, there's a sense of insecurity here e.g Some of these K2 fans strongly imply that both Klitschko's would KO past greats yet quote Mike Tyson as gospel when he suggests that both brothers would be competitive in any era. Hypocrisy.

I'm more of an Ali fan than a Klitschko fan, by far.
Ali, technically was rubbish and did everything wrong. Just look at him reaching with his punches against Norton. Both the Klits would easily outpoint Ali because Ali can only fight on the outside. The Klits are also limited in that they can only fight on the outside but they have height and technical advantages over Ali, they'd only need to throw single punches and stay on the outside to win. Ali just isn't the style to beat a Klitschko, if you know boxing and you don't wear rose colour glasses you know that.
