For a proud person like Ali to talk like that about another great heavyweight shows he thought it would have been very difficult.
this would be one-sided for ali imo. he would have outboxed him all night.

Rock was the hardest punching HW of all time. Guy had unreal power. His height would be the only hindrance in an Ali fight.

Ali right as usual. Marciano is in a different league to Frazier.

Ali hated white people. But he loved to tell them things they wanted to hear.

I think Marciano left a good impression on Ali after there staged fight. Good to see Marciano getting the respect he deserves. Fighters with his style are easily written off as easy beats against ATGs by the arrogant know-it-all fans today who only rate fighters of a certain style

I can't think of anyone under 200lbs that would have beaten him in a 15 round fight.

Marciano is arguably my favorite HW of all time, but i think Ali's exp beating guys like Liston and Foreman who were monster punchers shows he prob outboxes the rock..

I also think Marciano was better than Frazier.

Would he have beaten ali?

Maybe, but I tend to lean towards Ali on his best day.

Wrong. Quite the opposite.

He was much less of a racist than what people think.

But he did like to provoke and tell people exactly what they didn't like to hear.
