i dont know how you cant see similarities between robinson and ali. its common knowledge SRR was alis hero and idol, whom he structured his style after. he used to go off in camp how his style is beautiful like robinsons. ali is definitely not a carbon copy but when you watch SRR then ali its uncanny.
cosig on the power punches of the two sugars of course.

It is hard for me to comment on the Ali part, because I have watched at least 50x times more Ali footage than Robinson's and with very different film quality, so the resolution at which I picture them in my mind is completely different.
