I think his power might have been a touch underrated though. He isn't thought of as being a particularly concussive puncher. But he certainly hurt and knocked out guys with decent chins, through more than just a combination of speed, accuracy and timing.
Yes, Ali was a hard puncher and his punch selection and accuracy helped him score a lot of KO's. However, I don't Ali always used his power. Wactching some of his fights I always got impression that if he had sat down on more of his punches he could have got more KOs. He went the distance with a lot of guys that he should have knocked out.
