Ali would beat him Marciano would give him more problems than say Lennox Lewis.

Yep, most would agree that Bruno's chin was average but no where near the worst. Therefore, he doesn't deserve mention on this thread.
Despite facing a number of heavy punchers, how many times was Bruno knocked down (and cleanly knocked out)
"I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered."
Those of you claiming that Foreman would win because Ali had slipped need to tell us how he wins. By knockout? Very unlikely. Stoppage? Unlikely....
Ingo retired in April '63, (after going the distance with Brian London!) so you can't really say Ali avoided him.
Yes but Bowe throws slightly more punches than Wilder's 4 attempted hayemakers per round....
Woah.... Does that include prime Mike tyson?
It was shown live on Sky Movies.
Witherspoon was not on anyone's radar in 1991.
Ruddock was feared by many.
Wilder is a one-trick pony... But, boy, what a trick he has up his sleeves!
Re: "Lewis wilder :
Whilst I completey agree that Lewis wins all these fights, the latest he knocked anyone out was Round 8.
What about Steele's stoppage in Tyson Ruddock 1?
What he lacked was the opportunity to fight and beat an ATG ie Liston, Frazier, Foreman.
That would have cemented his greatness in the eyes of...
Fury wouldn't be able to out point Frazier because Frazier would be the one throwing more punches non stop for 12 rounds.
See Ali vs Brian London to see how this fight would go.
If Liston had lived, you wonder if he would have played a part in Foremans corner or at the very least imparted a few tricks of the trade.
I'd favour Norton.
They have 2 common opponents, ignoring Foreman for the time being...
Older Norton did better against against young Holmes...
Big difference with Ali and Holy could be the fact that Ali fought many tough 15 rounders...
I don't think anyone is knocking out Mike Tyson in under 3 rounds. Not even big George.
In comparison, after FOTC until the end of '74, Frazier fought only 6 times....
A couple of years would mean around around 1976 at the very earliest?
