Now we all know you like to be right all the time but you're really not we just let you think that but Ali was a great fighter but Joe Frasier was his equal and a better man to boot.

In this case, the facts are clear and documented several times over by many many people/

Like it or not, Ali was a better all round boxer. his record proves it, his reputation proves it.

Yeah, maybe Frazier was a nicer bloke. So what, that's not the point.

I think the difference between them in boxing prowess was minimal but Ali made more noise, a lot more.
Thats about it.

Must be terrible for Ali to be losing control like that, great shame.
Tyson was awsome I was very disappointed when he crashed and burned.

Sad yes, bur it's better to regret things you did, than things you didn't.

A great man.

Even when humbled.

Charles Manson doesn't agree.

Ali was/is great but Frazier was terribly underrated probably because he wasn't a showman and Ali dominated the sport in those days but not as much as you would think, his perceived dominance over Frazier was boosted by his ability to talk.

Get Parkinsons DVD, has Ali on it, he says Ali was the man he admired most.
Ali got wound up in one interview , it got rather tense.

You've still got it wrong. Didn't you even watch that doco?

Frazier wasn't underrated at all. He was also an undefeated champion when they fought, and he beat Ali.......

To be a great boxer, you have to take your opponents best punches as well as give your own.

Thats where Ali was the greatest. How do you think Frazier felt, when he landed those monster hooks, and even felled Ali, only for him to bounce right up after 4 seconds and carry on and fight just as strong.

Ali was the greatest because he exploited ALL opportunities, and if there were few weaknesses in his opponents, he'd create them in the form of doubt, anger, frustration etc....
