Muhammad Ali by TKO, I think he can take what GF lands which won`t be often, I think Ali continually beats him to the punch in the centre of the ring & ties him up or glides away from him when he gets cornered... maybe cuts, swelling or plain exhaustion causes the ref or George`s corner to intervene to stop the fight about round 10 or so.

Ali of 64 was better than Ali of 74 - fact

Ali wouldn't need rope-a-dope for this one. He'd simply use his speed and natural abilities to score a UD or late TKO. As freakishly powerful as Foreman was, stamina wasn't among his chief assets. With his style, Ali would've always had a field day with him...any time Manila or before, that is.

Ali admitted that Liston scared him more than any other fighter so he was scared but of course he's gonna run, what's he gonna do stand and trade with the man?

Ali wins inside 10. Clear cut and fairly one sided. Too fast and smart.

He put on a virtuouso performance. If that was running scared, I wonder what you find beautiful about boxing.
