    It's easy to look like Ali against a guy like Wilder I think Ali would beat Fury pretty handily, though may take a big to figure out range, etc. In his prime Ali had faster hands, better feet, and smoother combos than Fury. Tyson would have size and reach but c'mon, Fury has had less than impressive fights against smaller HWs...he also nearly got stopped last night. Folks are getting a bit ahead of things with the claim that Fury is and would beat all the ATGs

    All the people who don't even watch boxing suddenly become experts after a big fight, it's honestly laughable and embarrassing at the same.

    "Fury easily beats Ali" "Ali, Foreman and Frazier would quickly lose to today's top boxers"... get the hell off my planet.

    Hard to say.

    Will the ref allow Tyson to wrestle?

    Will the commission let Dundee tear padding from Ali's glove?

    Super Heavyweight Era..

    Tough to predict.. Ali is obviously NOT knocking him out.. He has to win on PTS..

    He is pretty slick for Foreman..

    Wilder and Foreman would be a toss of the coin fire fight..

    it really wouldn’t be. Foreman would walk him down and knock him out double quick

    It would be a the worst hugging contest anyone had ever seen. Two punch combo, clinch, break. Both men for fifteen rounds.

    TBH I don’t have a very clear vision of what this matchup would be but I wouldn’t confuse prime Ali with either old Wlad or Deontay Wilder.

    Lol dumbass... Usyk weighed in at 221, Joshua at 240.

    That's nothing compared to the discrepancy between Fury and Ali.

    Not clean. Not one time. Think Mayweather/Canelo fight.

    No, he would not. Ever.

    Exactly.

    Gotta think this is a trolling thread. I guess we've got a week of it coming?

    Well George Foreman was a heavyweight wrecking machine back in the day. Ali I believe was a big underdog in the fight. Foreman came out and dominated as we all thought. Ali's rope a dope made it look like Ali was absorbing lots of damage but he wasn't and when Ali sensed Foreman tiring Ali turned up the heat and KO'd Foreman.

    With that being said I believe Ali in his prime would've defeated every HW champion that came after him including Fury. Ali was a special HW one that used his intelligence, speed , skills and the will to win to defeat opponents he was not supposed to beat.

    Fury isn't much bigger than AJ. He is an inch taller and has more fat.

    Ali would struggle with him because of his size and skill for a guy that big. Fighters have gotten bigger and bigger at HW.

    Fury is significantly less skilled than Ali.

    Tough to say who would win, but Ali certainly wouldn't get hit by all of those punches Wilder did- Ali was great defensively, Wilder is mediocre to bad.

    Ali might have been able to stay away from him and outpoint him when he was young and fast, pre-Vietnam protest. Ali was a great strategist.

    Fair to also point out Ali never faced anyone that big and that skilled. He faced several guys that hit harder than Fury though.
