Nortons style effected the fights outcome against past prime Ali. Frazier came as close as anyone to koing Ali and in fact he beat him. Are you saying 205 lb. Joe Frazier was bigger and more athletic than Ali? Style and skill as well as speed are what makes fighters win or Lose. Size is WAY down on the list. Foreman is a big athletic man but Ali knocked him out...a ten count and he was leading by wide margins when the ko came. Bugner another big man Ali dominated. All past his prime by the way. But then again you don't know this.

Boxers, like all other athletes, continue to improve. Ali was big and quick for his era but not for later eras.
60s Ali came along in an era that was weak compared to those that came before and after it, but that doesn’t mean that he would not have beaten the top fighters from stronger eras, if you can even call Morrison that.

Morrison is not a guy who was just unlucky to share an era with Lennox Lewis. He didn't just loose to the best of his era, he also lost to the second ratters, third ratters, and arguably fourth ratters.

He would have got his clock cleaned in any era.

I clearly favour Tommy over all versions. And as Galt said, the proof is in the video evidence.

Ali does not LOOK like anything special.

Morrison looked spectacular!

Morrison fought the better opponents over whole career! Purely because they were HEAVYWEIGHT opponents.

Morrison fought 50 odd HW fights and lost 3. Ali only fought 32 and lost 4!

Not counted, but Ali WAS a HW and LOST to a sub 200 CW, 7 fight green career bum who Tommy would have knocked out so fast the crowd would be crying out for a refund!
You can't be serious! If that's your true opinion then it would've been better left unsaid because it shows how little you know about boxing.

Really? Look above 85 percent agree Ali beats Morrison 70 percent by Ko. Name one boxing trainer or historian who believe Morrison would ko Ali. Name one. Name one in this entire world who believes something so ridiculus.
