Default Prime Muhammad Ali-Invincible?

Muhammad Ali is widely regarded as the greatest HW ever. He had it all, speed, chin, heart, movement, tactics-more so then any other big man in History.

At his prime, was the self styled-and acknowledged- greatest invincible?

Who would have the best chance of dethroning the Greatest in his pre lay-off/exile years?

i believe no fighter could take out the cleveland williams Ali 3/5 times. No-1. That was Ali at his very best... powerful, explosive, fast on his feet and in his hands, and very hard to find in the ring. People say he wasn't as smart in those days, of course he was... there was never any necessity to use them to a great extent.

Who could POSSIBLY take him out 2/5 times... frazier, holmes, louis. No-1 else. Some might argue Rocky Marciano... a sports writer once put it 'Ali would be too fast and fancy for the rock' and thats pretty much right. Ali would stop Marciano on cuts without a doubt. Ali was the greatest, but he could be beat. People are entitled to their opinions, i may disagree... but if people wish to put Ali at 2) so be it, aslong as Louis is at 1.

Not at all was he invinciable. Very, Very far from being any sort of humble man, Ali admitted after being beat down by Frazier that if he had fought he him earlier in his career he just would have beaten earlier and worse.

Nobody is invincible. But I would pick NOBODY over him on his best night.

=========i believe no fighter could take out the cleveland williams Ali 3/5 times.==========

** Cleveland Williams was KOed by lots of fighters. Moreover Williams was very damaged goods when Ali fought him. I'm sure you believe in pie in the sky too.

Ali was as close to invincible as any fighter ever. I'd say a peak Tyson exceeds him though, and a peak Dempsey comes close.

Please, esp with the dimensions Dempsey would be conceding.
