    Ali might be the better boxer but still lose to fury

    look at remy vs saap ... remy far more skilled but couldn’t handle the size difference... now of course fury is far more skilled than saap but, at a certain point size becomes a massive advantage

    I don’t think fat is a factor at all

    And Ali ends the conversation by beating Cooper and going on to be regarded as the greatest of all time.

    Based on your logic Foreman who's 6'3, 220 and hits like a battering ram and Liston who was the biggest puncher in the division should've beaten Ali... oh wait LOL.

    See your own logic works against you because the reality is Ali has beaten several bigger punchers and bigger men than Cooper. Just because Fury beat Wilder and Klitschko does not mean he beats Ali. Fury in his own words said he struggled with Cunningham because Cunningham was hard to hit, small, moved around and was slick. All traits Ali excels at compared to Fury and Cunningham. Styles make fights.

    Fury would lose to Lewis... as much as I like Fury and do regard him current best HW , he has beaten two people of note..Klitschko who hasnt won since and Wilder who has a single trick and was losing to a 120 year old Ortiz until Ortiz got caught..

    You can't compare eras. The 2021 Georgia bulldogs would beat the 1969 super bowl Jets. Athletes are bigger stronger faster and better trained every generation.... Go back and look at simple metrics like the 100 m the whole field is a second faster than gold medalists 50 years ago. I'd wager about 50% of the top 10 heavyweight could beat Ali and ancient legends like Babe Ruth wouldn't even make the Big show today.


    Stop living in the past the best is now.

    He is 3 inches taller than AJ, and muscle weighs more than fat and take more energy to oygenate, hence why AJ and Wilder make conor McGregor look like an ultra marathoner. Even Wilder is taller than AJ and we all saw how Fury man handled him. Fury's "fat" is the biggest red herring in the history of combat sports, and probably even helps him. Here are two of your greatest cardio machines in HW MMA:

    In his prime he was the lightest version of himself so that would be a huge size advantage for Fury. However, I'd like to see Fury try to maul Ali the way he did Wilder, while he was floating around the ring like a butterfly and keeping him honest stinging like a bee.

    Ali vs Fury? More like nostalgia vs recency bias.

    Fury answered this himself. Dont compare eras, it's madness. Ali was sound as fuck with his fundamentals, but he never fought a zombie that refuses to die. Impossible to say. However fury will never be rated as high as ali, as ali fought everyone, and deserves his accolades. Fury still got to beat some lads to cement top 20 imo. And I've sung his fucking song since he debuted.

    Well Ali fought him for over 40 rounds over 3 fights. In future don't say stupid shit if your uneducated.
