Bill was also right up there on my list. I continue to be surprised at the boxing knowledge he posesses, and its a real achievement considering his age. Thumbs up to Bill :thumbsup:White Tyson said:Bill
One of the most intelligent people I have ever met on the Internet!!!
Your referring to Henry's belief that Muhummed Ali could have beaten Rocky Marciano. Yeah, it was a very impassionate debate wasn't it.The Auctioneer said:... the back and forth between JCC and Hhascup. Each had very impassioned posts relating how they felt.
LOL ....The Auctioneer said:Yes, I thought both of you pleaded your case well.I was swaying back and forth after each one, and I have decided not to go either way as the result, Because of you my Ali vs. Marciano is now a draw:dunno: happy new year:laugh:
JCC said:LOL ....
Well, Henry's is a good old boy, and I like Henry. But I fear that he may have fallen into this trend that came to subcribe to Muhummed Ali's SELF-MADE CLAIM of being the "Greatest," much out of nostaligia or even pity for the shell of Ali, we see now.
If Ali in his prime could have fought Rocky Marciano in his prime, we do know that its not as if Ali was boxer who could not be hit with a punch, and we do know that Marciano hit hard. I mean VERY hard.
We also do know that when Ali was in his prime he was almost knocked out by Henry Cooper who was a good fighter, but at best a club fighter.
Well, Rocky Marciano was no Henry Copper, and Marciano could punch hard, I mean VERY hard.
In a fight with Marciano, I would predict that Ali would evently get caught on the ropes and would be knocked out by Marciano.
Yes, I agree, BUT he never went against Ali or any of the top Opponents that Ali beat, such as:JCC said:I don't have to make any excuses for Marciano because he refused and won all his fights.
