    This. Hard to pick one, since Ali borrowed from a lot of fighters and made his own uniqie style.

    The three main influences on Ali's style:

    Robinson
    Pastrano
    Rodriguez

    These are the three to look into first, as they directly inspired Ali's way of boxing, as he frequently studied them as a young pro.

    I suppose the most obvious thing is how much it misses by.
