Ali couldn’t take those punches
Not a fair comparison though lol Fury is 280-295 in the ring while Ali was what 210-220?
Just stop it.
Ali wouldn't get hit by those punches.
He would, but the sport grows, and people have access to more, better, and cumulative understanding and training. The steeple is higher than the foundation but wouldn't be there otherwise
lol, come on. Can't we just enjoy the fight we just saw? Beating Wilder doesn't mean you beat the greatest heavyweight of all time.
Yea I'm not sure Fury beats Usyk.
Fury wouldn't even beat Foreman.
"Ali couldn't take those punches...."
Yeah, that chinny Ali was lucky he fought feather fisted guys like Foreman, Liston and Frazier.
Aren’t you kids up past your bedtime?
Sorry, but prime Foreman starches both of them on the same night.
Of course he would. Nostalgia and logic doesn’t mix.
Ali’s style wouldn’t match up well with Fury’s, Fury is also able to change his style from elusive to a forward educated pressure style which is dam impressive
Ali drugged Foreman before they fought
I don’t count that
Fury vs Foreman would be a war and could go either way
They're close in skills but Fury is just so much bigger and longer.
Come on now. Fury was out of shape and gassed half way through. Ali would have boxed circles around him.
Ali/Foreman/Frazier would lose very quickly to every single top ranked HW in 2021. It wouldnt even be a competitive fight.
Anybody that doesnt understand this, doesnt really understand boxing at a deep level.
From the fact he would have a big size advantage yeah he likely Beats Ali as he's a bad match up.
Ali's footwork was revolutionary for a HW in his time, but now days it is nothing special. He was 6''3 and was a rangy fighter, who had a decent jab and straight right, his other punches are very slow and sloppy.
He would be fighting guys who are 6''7' and are much more explosive, sharp and hit way harder than he did.
What an amazing unironic troll. Im sure those guys would have a lot of trouble dealing with Wilder who was out on his feet after 4 rounds. Fury would give a good fight because he is awkward and big but he would not be favorite at all.
Ok list all the HW's with footwork on Ali's level. Go on. lol
