how the hell was ali exciting in comparison to there other boxers like Gatti, Tyson, liston, foreman, frazier and so on. brawlers and ppl who cum forward are exciting, not runners

For consistantly supplying the highest levels of both unbelievable drama and tremendous excitement in pretty much every single one of their fights, the "Schoolboy" Bobby Chacon & Matthew Saad Muhammad would be my top two choices for this category.

Arturo Who?

the most exciting boxer ever was definately not a heavyweight.

jabsRstiff
12-23-2005, 09:16 AM
Matthew Saad Muhammad !

Miracle Matthew.....is my choice.

He was every bit as dramatic a fighter as Gatti, except he was a better fighter, facing the far better opposition.

muhammed ali was different to most heavyweights anyway, because he would actually move rather then just walk about slowly like louis, gatti was a great exciting fighter and young tyson, i wouldnt say liston hes slow.

Yogi
12-23-2005, 10:37 AM
i wouldnt say liston hes slow.

Liston wasn't "slow", man, and if you actually believe that then you might want to check out the footage available of him from about four or five years before the Ali fights. By that time he had slowed down quite a bit and it wouldn't be fair to judge him for that reason, and also comparing him to what is arguably the quickest Heavyweight of all-time...

The Sonny Liston who fought from 1958-1961 was very noticably quicker than the one who later fought Ali, as he threw a very snappy & quick left jab, as well as a very snappy (powerful!) & quick lead left hook. Sure, his right hand wasn't as fast as his left, as he seemed to telegraph it before throwing it (there was usually a short pause with it, it seemed). But his left hand, and even his footwork & reflexes were all pretty quick in his prime.

By no means am I saying Liston was one of the fastest Heavyweights in history...but the best Sonny Liston was a helluva long way from being "slow"!

Brassangel
12-23-2005, 11:24 AM
I agree. Most people tend to judge Liston based upon his fights with Ali. Let's not forget that a deep case of depression had sunk in by that time.

For excitement, early Tyson has got to be up there. And even later in his career, you would still watch him hoping to catch a glimpse of that old explosiveness.

Roy Jones Jr. was pretty hilarious to watch in his earlier bouts as well. Walking around like a chicken; reeling off 9 punch combos that all landed in different spots; etc.

Muhammad Ali was actually quite the opposite of exciting. He danced away and barely threw any punches until the mid-to-late rounds. Although he was exciting in the 70's when his speed left him, and he had to use his wits to win. Watching him take down a dangerous George Foreman was kind of exciting.

you seen his fight with cleveland williams mate? that fight was fuking amazing, he showed everyone that he was an AMAZING boxer, that fight was exciting, the way you saw his ring dominance, it was just poetry.

ali kept moving in his fights, not standing still like most fighters, he kept up the rhythm.

ali by far. he's the michael jordan of boxing. he changed the way alot of hw's fought. he moved like a lightweight, and pumped quick jabs and leads with ease, and the way he moved back from punches was fun to watch.

Mike Tyson Jr.

Dempsey and Tyson were far and away the most exciting fighters in history. Both set the gold standard for income in their days, meaning they had a huge fan base and both dominated the media and not without coincidence, both fought in a similar style, taking on larger men and destroying them.

Ali was exciting, made bukoos of dinero, and dominated the media also, but he had some of the most boring and ridiculous fights ever, some real stinkers.

12-23-2005, 01:38 PM

Ali certainly was the most entertaining fighter I have witnessed. The way he handled the media , opponents and the world audience makes him the "Greatest"

But the question was "Most Exciting" undoubtedly young Mike Tyson. You were afraid to blink because you would miss some of the most evciting action to ever hit the ring! :boxing:

but excitement is about knokouts, blood, heart! im not sayin ali didnt show his heart or chin, eg frazier, foreman etc, but ppl like gatti, hagler, dempsey took shots in order to land their own, dey had 1punch KO power, and went forward chasin der oponents! dats my kind of excitement!

70's - I don't think I need to back this up.
80's - Hagler, Tyson, Hearns

Jack Dempsey hands down imo.

The Willard, Firpo, Tunney fights Both of em, and the Sharkey fight were pretty amazing to watch. The only downer of his fights that were FILM, and MADE it, is maybe Gibbions.

Marciano was pretty fun, Walcott 1, Charles 1 and 2. And the Moore fight, The only fight that was borning, imo is maybe the ****ell fight for the first 3 or so rounds.

Louis was pretty amazing with his knockouts.

So was Micky Walker, who is a exciting fighter.


Hagler, Hearns, Duran that bunch.

Lacy, is there 2, So is Gatti. and Ward.
Gene Fullmer was a thrill to watch.
And so was Liston in his prime.

Joe Fraizer 2, It was not Ali that made thsos fights great, It was Frazier, he brought the drama to thsos fights.

you're forgetting one thing. those fights were past his prime. watch ali from 1960-1967. those fights were exciting, cause he moved fast and hit his opponents at will. even the quarry and bonavena fights in 1970 were very exciting.

Mike Tyson without a doubt, and I am far from a Tyson fan. Mike Tyson vs Ali? Kind of like a summer blockbuster vs a critically acclaimed masterpiece. Generally speaking, the summer blockbuster is more entertaining/exciting to watch, at least for the moment, while the critically acclaimed masterpiece is the more enduring due to its technical merits.

Big part from Ali's excitement and greatness lays outside the ring.

Dempsey was my favorite of all time, I have his autograph on a popcorn bag my grandpa had when he saw him refereeing at a wrestling match.

Dempsey1238
01-16-2006, 12:18 PM
Dont think Ali had the best chin,

Chavlo was NEVER drop, even vs Fraizer and Foreman,
Ross was never knockout in over 80 or so fights.
Lamotta face the big punchers of the middleweights, and was never drop when WELL pass his best.

Jim Jeffies of couse was never drop until Jack Johnson.
Might as well add in Joe Grim, he may have LOST evey fight he had, but a guy in the middleweight range, going the distant with Jack Johnson, and other heavyweights, has to count for something to regards to chin. Sad to say, he never won a fight, but was knockout when well PAST his prime(Well past his prime I guess??)

Gans, also had a good chin, the McGoven fight was a fix. And he was dieing when he was knockout for real.

Fullmer, outside of the Robinson rematch, was never knockout.
And that was called the PERFECT punch.
Micky Walker, a Middleweight going 8 rounds with puncher Max Schmling, who was a heavyweight. And Schmling did not knockout Walker thought. His conor stop the fight. Walker may have been killed, the guy had heart.

this is off top of my hand.

You brought up some great fighters, but the more you think about it, Ali was hit a lot for a guy that was so unhittable. Even in his early days he got hit a lot, I am not sure if he had the best chin ever but I think people should watch a lot of his fights and you would be surprised how many times he got hit. After his come back from suspension he was hit in fights against slow moving opponents(Norton), I still say he was very beatable....

watch alis 6 hit combos and folley fell face first to the mat. he made liston quit after liston missed him for 6 rounds when he wass blind. he hit c williams so many times he was trying to walk to the wrong corner lol

holmes couldnt ko ali but jeffers gets ko by johnson and he has a better chin than ali?

all the rest og the guys u talk about are not hws so when did they ever get hit by frazer or forman? thats weak.

whatever man

i would say ali is #4 in chin, under chuvalo, foreman, and frazier, in that order.

if the jaber was knocking ppl out while he wass unifying then he would be just as exciting or more exciting. remeber ali was KTFOing ppl left and right.

I'm not saying he's the most exciting fighter ever....but I want to give him his due for being a super-exciting warrior...

MARVIN JOHNSON.

This late 70's-early 80's, 175lb.southpaw went to war, throwing his awesome left hand (especially his uppercut) non-stop, with power.
He took a lot of punches doing so.....which made his fights total wars, at times. He was a fantastic amateur....showing serious skills, but left those days behind him when he turned pro.
His two fights with Saad Muhammad rank amongst the most brutal in history.
He came back & won the Lt.Heavy crown for a third time, & was still going toe-to-toe with the best 175lbers, years after his best days.

A kill-or-be-killed fighter....a warrior.

Well in my opion Roy Jones Jr, Tyson, Whitaker, Ali.


The guys that the general public thinks are the greatest (Tyson, Roy Jones etc) are usually going to be on this list.

The very reason that the general public thinks they are the greatest is precisely because of how exciting they are.

What? Ali was many things, but a great technical boxer he wasn't!

Ofcourse he was, "great technical boxer" does not necessarily mean "orthodox boxer".

Leonard
Roy Jones Junior
Mike Tyson
Ali
ODLH (his paycheks talk themselves :) )

I should say this is rather a matter of taste. Personally i think young Foreman was definetly fun to watch, and some may find the hugging and pushing of the early 1900s exciting...

Believe it or not, I think Mike Tyson was the most exciting boxer ever. I was on the edge of my chair for every one of his matches.

Well Muhammad Ali was the most entertaining sports figure to have ever lived.

But for the most exciting boxer of all time, this probably differs with everyone, but i think most would say Iron Mike Tyson.

Tommy Hearns, Matthew Saad Muhammad, Nigel Benn, Diego Corrales, Charles Brewer, Arturo Gatti....there are many exciting fighters and the ones i named are just the ones from recent memory.

Not saying the best, but for pure excitement I would pick out Nigel Benn, Gatti, Tommy Hearns and Joe Frazier. Put a gun to my head.....Nigel Benn

04-10-2009, 06:12 PM
For consistantly supplying the highest levels of both unbelievable drama and tremendous excitement in pretty much every single one of their fights, the "Schoolboy" Bobby Chacon & Matthew Saad Muhammad would be my top two choices for this category.

Arturo Who?

Thank you. Nice to see someone who knows about the sport.

Pacquiao is damn exciting

Mike Tyson
Thomas Hearns


It's sort of hard for me to list fighters not from my generation that were exciting since I never got to see them live. (I never even got to see Mike live or Hearns since I wasn't into boxing in the early 90's)

04-10-2009, 08:02 PM
for me this is easy, theres 3, RJJ, prince naseem and emanuel augustus (purely because hes funny). for the likes of ali he was good to watch but not exciting, for a heavyweight i suppose you could say he was but so were brawlers like marciano.

ive never watched mathew saad muhammad, but i will
