Muhammad Ali was retired with an impeccable 55-2 record and a Heavyweight belt he defended against all of the best contenders. He decided to give a young gold medalist an opportunity at his belt. Ali lost in a close decision to the young upstart. That loss does hurt Ali's record. At the same time, he came back the second fight and put in one more great performance to win the title again. That match gave him the record for 3 heavyweight title reigns. Do you think it hurt Ali to add that loss to record or did he make for it by adding another record to his legacy? Obviously the Holmes and Berbick fights didn't help. Let's just assume Ali stays retired after Spinks.
