    they are just fucking around, wish they were a tad more serious, of course it's only an exhibition. Funny, in all the viewing of Ray, i've only seen him do that jab where he's only on his left foot leaning forward, only once. Ali jabbed like that all the time, makes me wonder how ali would have picked that up because ray rarely did that and really, ali didn't fight that much like Ray.

    Ali did say he loved to constantly watch tapes of Louis and Robinson.
    Also, its not just that its an exhibition, they are really far in weight classes.
    If only we had footages of their Amateur bout, and see that great undeveloped raw talent colide with our own eyes.

    ya, i know its and exhibition, but personally, i would have liked to see them even punching at half speed and not trying to really land, that would be great.
