Ali's power was underrated. Sure he wasn't a Foreman or Shavers in the power department, but he could punch.

Also, what's amazing is when Ali's legs slowed down and he didn't have the ability to dance for an entire fight, after the layoff, it showed whats guts and determination the guy had. He went toe-to-toe with Frazier 3 times basically. And though he lost the first fight, it was still pretty close. I had it 6-6-1 going into the last two rounds, where Frazier won them clearly and floored Ali. But had Ali been in his prime against Frazier (64-67), he wouldn't have lost to Frazier once.

I just don't think he was the greatest ever, like so many people say he is. I think he is in the top 30 though.

Wow........

So the guys beats Jones, Cooper, Liston, Patterson, Chuvalo, Mildenberger, Terrell, Folley, Quarry, Bonavena, Frazier, B. Foster, M. Foster, Ellis, Bugner, Norton, Foreman, Lyle, Young, and Shavers.......3 ATG HW's (Liston, Frazier, Foreman) and 4 other HOF fighters (Patterson, Norton, B. Foster, Moore).

Beat everyone in his era, called the Golden Era of HW boxing, and isn't in your Top 5 or at the very least Top 10???
