Default Mohammad Ali, is he really the Greatest?

Is it right that Mohammad Ali a.k.a. Cassius Clay is the all time Greatest Boxer in the World? Do you agree ?

Even though you're running out of alts, and making a vain attempt to stay on the forum, that's about right.. Punch bag Ali was a lazy cunt compared to the youthful & nerdish Clay..
As discussed previously on this site, he was never the same after popping his cherry..

I'd say he's up there, but not in the same league as Armstrong, Robinson or Greb..

Nah, he even said that he considered Ray Robinson to be the greatest of all time and that he considered himself to be the greatest heavyweight of all time.

In my heart, he will always be the greatest. He is to boxing what Michael Jordan is to basketball, Tiger Woods is to golf, Babe Ruth is to baseball, Jim Brown is to football, and what Michael jackson is to music.

That said...Ali couldn't hold Jim's jockstrap.
