The issue is that the earth is nothing more than the tiniest spec of sand in an endless beach. Assuming other civilizations have mastered travel at light speed, highly unlikely, they would still need to locate our spec of dust located in an ordinary galaxy that contains billions of Dust specs. Then to complicate things further our universe contains millions of galaxies each containing billions of dust specs.

Extraterrestrial aliens have not visited the Earth. UFOs are either natural phenomena or our own creations.

I don't like Mayweather's style but he's better than both on this list.

Ali fought guys in their prime but Mayweather is the overall, better boxer and both got preferential treatment from the referees.

I agree. I think Floyd was the better technician, but Ali took more risks and at least fought other elite level opponents while they were at their best. Something Floyd never did.

Mayweather fought in an era where being a champion was easy as was being termed a contender. Thus hopelessly watered down.

Johnson was heavyweight champion during a time where blacks were lynched at a whim He was the most badass of badass. He was also an amazing technical fighter with unmatched skills.

Ali was a great boxer and as tough as they come. He fought the best competition of any heavyweight champion. He is pretty much universal No 1 ATG heavyweight champion.

Of the three Mayweather is the most overrated.

Johnson’s best wins came against much smaller opponents, virtually middleweights. Many of them were also woefully inexperienced.

Ali got several gifts and fixes in his favor. For a technical aspect he did a lot of things wrong. He also fought his share of no-hopers and smaller opponents. Yet has the best wins of the three. Certainly not deserving of “the greatest” moniker.

You were wrong regarding Trump and wrong here. You watch fake news too much. You know the fake news that told you of all that voter fraud that did not exist. Guess who was unwavering to call all that so called fraud lies? CNN.

Ali fought the greatest of competition. Many deadly punchers. Ali was a great boxer and super tough...as tough as they come. He is rated as the greatest by everyone for a reason.

Johnson’s skills were off the chart. His toughest opposition was before he was champion. As champion the only place he could make a good paycheck was fighting white contenders. Attempts to fight Langford, Jeanette all fell though twice due to promoters not coming up with $ and once when a Johnson fled to Europe to avoid jail time. Johnson had no issue fighting any of these men he just wanted to be paid his typical paycheck to do so .....$30,000.

Agree 100 on your take on the fighters mentioned, and you are a first class a hole to bring the other thread into the discussion.
