Default Ali's Chin

After watching Ali Frazier 1 (which is a sticky in this forum), i was amazed at how Ali was able to take Frazier's huge left hooks all night.

Yes he eventually went down in the last round, but i honestly dont believe many other heavyweights could have taken that, and survived.

Basically, i think it shows that the Henry Cooper knockdown early on in Ali's career, is almost irrelevant wen discussing Ali's ability to take a punch.

Ali had an amazing and very underrated chin.

And even if a Joe Louis or Marciano were able to catch Ali with their shots, i dont think it would mean the end.
Ali's punch resistance and toughness is often overlooked IMO.

I've never heard about his chin being overlooked. Never.

My point was, many people use the fact that Ali was knocked down and almost out by Cooper, to suggest that he would have been KO'd by Louis.

Yet he took so many of Fraziers best left hooks and stood up.

For me, after watching that fight, the chances of Louis 'catching up' with Ali are very slim.

Were Fraziers punches anywhere near that quality of Louis or Marciano?

Maybe louis' punches were better, but not marciano's.
