Ali. Cassius Clay was his name. Imagine he said early in his career "naaw. Ain't gonna fight Liston". Ima wait til Patterson is champ again. And old. Later: "Foreman? You crazy, bro? Ain't gonna fight that monster. Look what he did to Frazier.?" "Earnie Shavers? Dude can punch like a horse. Naaw bro. Let's wait til he past his prime." Ali fought in the best era of heavyweight boxing. And he faced everybody. Jerry Quarry, Joe Frazier, George Foreman, Ken Norton, Cleveland Williams, Earnie Shavers, a young Leon Spinks, Chuvalo. He fought killers. And the biggest killers he fought 3 times. He wasn't one of them "Ima give 45 year old Floyd Patterson his well deserved title defense". He said line them up. #ImaUFCchumpLet'sseewhichbumImafightinmyfirsttitleDefence.
