who is this coopman guy anyway?

I think the title of dance master should belong to SRR, but it's a matter of preferences, I guess

Well he destroyed Williams, Patterson, Quarry, Moore, etc.

I'll go with Patterson. He easily could have knocked him out, but he wanted to punish him for insulting him and saying he wasn't an American.

Williams wasn't as easy for he wanted to go for the knockout as soon as possible to avoid Williams (for Williams had been shot, and taking him far could have really hurt him), so he just stopped him as soon as possible. If he did that to Patterson, or some other people, he would have KO'ed them in the first round.

In terms of style (and style does make fights), Big, slow, hard hitters are taylor made for Ali. Example, Sonny Liston, George Forman, Ron Lyle, Ernie Shavers and Cleveland Williams.

I agree. Ali really had his way with Williams.

williams all the way. ali hit the big cat in 1966 with over 100 punches in each round! that is unreal. he had 80% accuracy! that is also unreal. ali was hit a total of three times! that is again, unreal. it was the greatest display of the sweet science in its history, and ali did it at the tender age of 24! that is truly unreal. that was ali's prime fight. that was aliiiiiii!

Yea, but Ali was going for a knockout as soon as possible on Williams. Had he done that to Terrell or Patterson, he would have made them look even worse. If you watch both fights, there is a cruel fire in Ali's eye that reminds me a lot of Frazier and Foreman. He could have knocked either of them out whenever he pleased, he just wanted to bring the pain those nights.

Sonny Liston in the second fight. I dont think I need to explain why for anybody who actually witnessed that debacle.
