Ali got some favoritism, but it seems you accept all the wildest & least plausible accusations. How did the tape hanging off Ali's glove help Quarry? You think Quarry could have recovered if the fight was paused? What is the evidence that there was any bribe offered in Zaire? I believe the rope was made for a different sized ring, that was terrible planning, not that Dundee further loosened it. Dundee seemed not to favor Ali's strategy-until it worked. The diuretics were given to Ali by one Dr. Ali took them like candy: they were a large performance DE-enhancer. Ali was a Zombie, not even nearly as good as against Berbick=when his Parkinson's disease had further advanced-in December 1981.
