Go and find me the video footage where Muhammad Ali stated this.

Usually fighters say these things to please others, i can remember when George Foreman got carried away after Lennox Lewis beat Mike Tyson.

Prime Tyson was a beast though, I think it could've been tight enough.

Ali to me was just fooling for the cameras, pointing to Tyson & then saying IF he hit me!

I remember years on, & Ali's condition had deteriorated he was asked the same question & Ali drew a pic of two stickmen, one on the deck & the other over the top of him with arms raised, with the name Tyson & an arrow pointing to the stickman on the floor, & Ali with an arrow pointing to the guy with the arms raised

Froch can beat Eubank, Benn and Collins. Watson gives him a torrid time. Calzaghe wins at least 9 rounds.

Collins makes some valid points in his punditry but makes some terrible predictions. The one that always springs straight to mind for some reason is him heavily tipping Enzo Macc to do a number on Haye prior to that fight. Froch would have beaten Collins and you could see how he might've got the better of Benn if he wasn't on one of his flat-flooted nights. Stylistically though, Eubank would've be a difficult one for him and as for Calzaghe then I'm imagining the Ward fight without Calzaghe blowing a gasket for the last few rounds to allow Froch to finish strongly. That was a testament to Froch's chin and fitness after being totally outclassed for the majority of the fight. You'd imagine Froch nailing Calzaghe a few times but Calzaghe always had confidence in his chin unlike Ward who needs to get in and out of the pocket sharpish.

An ex fighter giving an honest appraisal of a tough, hard to beat fighter?
