Iīd love to have a press conferance with Johnson, Baer, Ali and Tyson (at his trash-talking best). I know Tyson isnīt up there with the others but he would be good enough to trigger a fun press conferance.

Baer/Ali would have been the biggest money maker of all time. There were no two bigger personalities in the Heavyweight division than these two. Could you imagine the hoopla surrounding such a hypothetical match-up as this? I bet the PPV buys would be quadrupled the numbers Pacquia/Hatton pulled in.

True. The fight would have been rather one sided,but the wit and banter flowing back and forth,would make the press conference a reporter's dream.

ali would thrash maxie to within an inch to make the pre-fight theatrics irrelevant

You may be correct here. Ali tended to go overboard when he couldn't upstage or intimidate his opponent during the pre-fight hype. Baer had the acting ability and charisma to meet Ali on his own terms, in terms of public relations.

Either way, I'm sure Ali would have won the fight on points by a wide margin. Muhammad would have been back to his brash and happy self at the post fight press conference.

I'm seeing a Cassius/young ali doing this but one thing to consider is ALI looked quite foolish back in those days where Max seemed quite socially aware and intelligent.
