Me too.

Seriously, Danell tried to be a poor man's Ali. He lacked the talent but did his damnest to resemble him in the ring.

good point . Sometimes Clay/Ali might have escaped unharmed but Cooper , Frazier , Jones and Chuvalo proved that he could be caught and hit . D thing is that prime Tua (b4 Ibeabuchi , maybe even b4 Izon) was quicker than what most remember and caught ppl more often . Not saying it happens every time but it could happen some of d times and lesser men actually managed it as i already mentioned .

Danell Nicholson; Muhammad Ali, that is the second time in history, they have been in the same sentence.

Lets be honest and Im a Kiwi who has always followed and supported Tua, this is a ridiculous match up. Tua struggled against boxers why would he stand any chance vs the GOAT. I voted for Ali decision but only because there wasn't the option of the ref stepping in and saying enough after prob round 7, or the crowd leaving due the massive 1 sidedness.

Also, David had a harder left hook than Frazier, and Ali was always vulnerable to left hookers. The Ibeabuchi fight was probably David's best performance...ironic that he lost the fight. How does he do against the Muhammad Ali of 1971?

No contest ! Ali wins by easy decision or late rounds technical knockout.

Tua may puncher harder than Joe, but Frazier is a more fluent puncher with a better jab and uppercut.

Tua also lacks the discipline needed for an opponent like Ali; not to mention he can't solve a great jab.

Ali TKO14.
