We really should try to keep up to date on here.
Ali would have been too slick for Louis. P4P Ezzard Charles vs Evander Holyfield would have been a great fight.

The 70's are so overrated it is comical. Frazier's best win except Ali is who? Bob Foster or Jerry Quarry? Foreman's best win side from Frazier was Ken Norton. Frankenstein Foreman feasted on pure bums up to the first Frazier fight.
Don't start in with Lyle, Foster, Ellis, Young, Bugner, etc being amazing fighters, they were journeymen FFS.
Ali is the only one of the big 3 that impresses me with his skills and resume, the rest are solid but not the legends they are now made out to be.

Personally I think Wladimir would be too cautious against Ali when his punches are missing and Ali is countering. Ali was just too fast and too good.

It helps the 70's era when one of those fighters became a champion in the 90's aswell especially when the 90's era was one of the best in heavyweight history.

He beat Michael ****ing Moorer with a Hail Mary punch after getting schooled for the entire fight. LHW Moorer that somehow held a belt in, as you say, one of the greatest era in HW history. Farcical. He got a gift against Schulz and beat no one else of note.
The 90's did give us ATG Lewis but otherwise failed to live up to its promise. Bowe had talent but was lazy and ducked Lewis shamelessly before being beaten into retirement by Golota.
Holyfield was a roided up CW and Tyson's career was a sham after his prison stint. Bruce Seldon was a champion in the 90's FFS.
Shake off that nostalgia high and maybe you will remember how the 90's were in reality. An entertaining era but hardly one of pugilistic excellence.

No, he has a boxer's chance. Same way Norton and Young did against a slightly more faded but still game Ali.

He'd toy with Wlad, it would be great to watch slick Fluidity triumph over stiff roboticness

No apparently Wlad is THE most powerful puncher in the history of humanity.

Plus he's really tall which is ALL that matters in boxing. So yea Wlad TKO1

I was responding to Prime Ali v. Wlad. There's a big difference between Prime Ali and Ali that stopped using his feet.

Wlad is a nightmare matchup for Ali.

That rope a dope bullshit won't work against Wlad.

Ali can't outsmart Wlad.

Ali can't outbox Wlad.

Feather fisted Ali can't stop Wlad.

Ali can't outpoint Wlad.

Wlad would destroy Ali.

Wlad is a superior fighter, superior athlete and superior human being.
