    IMHO - Foreman (the original one - not one of his sons)

    Ali couldn't punch - not even in his heyday in the 1960s- couldnt put away Floyd Patterson

    So Big George knocked down Frazier 6 times in 2 rounds before it was stopped (Down Goes Frazier)

    Ali struggled with Frazier in all 3 of their bouts.

    Ali got into Georges psyche in Zaire -and outsmarted him with the rope -a -dope.

    Still never had a knockout punch .

    Would liked to have see Tyson in his prime against the other 3.

    Probably would have beaten Frazier -but lost to Ali and Foreman - because he was out-reached.

    Ali dindt have a knockout punch to speak of - but he could sure take a punch.
