What do you think is Muhammad Ali's most underrated feature?

Personally, I think it's chin. I've seen him take some vicious shots and it didn't faze him. Even when he went down against Frazier he got right back up and finished the fight.

I wouldn't say his chin was underrated. Most would say that he had one of the best abilities to hold a punch in heavyweight history.

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.

I voted defense.

He not only knew how to move to defend but he also knew the correct time to grab and spoil, he also knew when to shell up and because of these 3 attributes it was rare that you landed a clean shot on him.

When people think of Ali they think of his flashy punches, his speed, his footwork and his mouth, but the guy could defend as well.

In his second career when his legs slowed down it just showed what a indomitable will the man had. Incredible.

I would say just general toughness, his chin gets a good amount of credit but his toughness went beyond just having a great chin.

Punching power would be my second choice.

Ali's chin is considered to be one of the greatest of all time so I wouldn't say it's underrated.
