(Copied over)
This is pretty well-known information, anyone who has seen both fight should immediately see how Ali tried to incorporate Robinson's style: everything from the footwork routine in the corner before the bell to punching from the waist. Ali attempted to be an homage to Robinson, although I think ultimately they ended up being fairly stylistically distinct. Robinson was much more willing to exchange openly.

He's NOT the greatest, Ali just respects Robinson that's why he's saying Ray is the greatest.

Ali respects lots of All Time Greats, but he dosen't call all of them the greatest. He only says Ray Robinson is the greatest.

You mean Floyd runs and takes the occasional pot shot perfectly.

Really, I've got every single Floyd fight and I can't for the life of me figure out where these post about him being "the best skilled fighter ever" come from. Cripes, he isn't even the best skilled fighter I've seen in RECENT memory (ever heard of Pernell Whitaker?). As for speed, I'd say p4p Roy Jones was faster than Floyd.
