Default Ali overrated says Larry Holmes

I was watching "Thrilla in Manila" doco last night and Larry Holmes said that Ali was overrated as a fighter and that he punched like a butterfly while it was Frazier who hit like a bee. Your thoughts?

Punching mouthpieces into the 5th row of stadiums must be a symptom of a soft hitter.

I think I'm getting this. You're saying Holmes had just eaten dinner when being filmed, and it's known he loves having quite a bit of salt on his food (Against his doctor's wishes). The combination of food and a lot of salt puts Holmes into a bitter, envious, tirade (Common knowledge?). This lasts about 45 minutes. By the time the crew left Larry was at his jolly, honorable, and truthful self. Shame we only always seem get to see Larry after he's eaten a salty meal?

I know I know, leave your complements for those who need them. I know I'm a regular Sherlock Holmes.
