Ali was a cruiserweight, at the beginning of his career, and even then, actuals cruiserweights are WAY more athletics than him; additionally, he didn't have neither the half of the power of the actual HW, in general;

I guess you can say Vlad is athletic, in a big, stiff sort of way.

But head to head here, in terms of boxing? Not even close.

Ali.

Define athletic.

- You mean if you put Ali and Wlad in a decathlon contest? 100m track and field, javelin throwing and the likes?
- Or pure stamina, say a 10km run?
- Or is it the physical look of somebody?

What exactly is 'athletic'? It seems everyone is using the term in a different contest.

Is it fair to put Wlad vs Wach?? Wlad is athletic no doubt but against totally nonathletic guy like Wach everyone look athletic.
Answer is Ali.

for his size Wlad is more "athletic". Not many big guys like him are as "athletic"
There are enough heavyweights with Ali like size who are more "athletic"

Answer is Ali.
But Cleveland Williams was crippled.

Why do you comment on Wlad vs Wach but leave Ali vs gunshot Williams alone?

Lebron James is what you call athletic for a big man. Wlad is good but his style is not based on athleticism. Wach made him look great but he couldn't land cleanly on Haye.
