    He was 56-5 for his professional career and had 37 KOs. He managed to punch as least a few times.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10ZIxV9KWgY&feature=fvst]Ali vs Foreman - Round 8 - YouTube[/ame]

    Watch that video. He knocked Foreman down.

    Besides, Ali was a boxer, not a one-punch kinda fighter. Boxing is more than just punching hard. But don't mistake his speed for lack of a punch.

    Ali was an incredible boxer.

    He reinvented and revitalized the sport for God's sakes.

    He's a boxing GOD.

    If we were Romans, there'd be statures cast in his honor.
