Its funny when I hear stuff like this. Look at todays division. 2 of the the best HWs in the world actually did fight at Cruiserweight, and one even at LHW. Not to mention that guys like Chambers, Povetkin, Boytsov and Chagaev would all weigh about 200lbs if they actually lost weight, all of them have a lot of extra fat they could lose. well, maybe not so much Boytsov, but hes clearly not that big of a guy anyway.

Thats most of the best guys in the division right there. The Klitschko brothers are just exception heavyweights, its not like theyre dominating because of their size, theyre just plain overall better.

oh, and the best two wins over Wladimir's career are over Byrd and Haye. Both of them are definitely no bigger than say Foreman, Norton, Lyle, and Frazier.

Yeah sure a few of his opponents were big but most were not. And a lot of the guys he fought were out of shape and had fat hanging around their waist.

A big in shape HW that could box would be the end of Ali. Foreman couldn't box to save his life, that's why he was called the zombie lol.

6'5 lennox lewis would have diced ali up in 6 rounds

Those opponents Ali fought were natural heavyweights, what are you talking about?

That's a fitting description of todays heavyweight scene. What are you referring too? give me some specifics.

Yeah, he looked like a zombie against Ali. Most would. What's your point?
Foreman made up for technical weaknesses by hitting like a truck, though he possesed a good Jab.

Pretty amusing. Lewis wasn't even close to dicing up Ray Mercer over the distance, someone incomparable to Ali's opposition. Study the Frank Bruno fight before lewis stopped him. Ernie terell was 6'6.
