    My dad always liked him. Had a powerful punch. “When he hits you, you hurt all over.”

    Greatest of HIS time. Of ALL time? I think probably Tyson in his prime.

    Ali in his prime against Marciano? Muhamud win by exhaustion and humiliation.Joe Frazier would have been a run for the money with Marcaino.

    It is hard to compare an athlete from his or her era to another athlete from a different era.

    Times change.

    Tyson was a great fighter. But I doubt he could have stopped George FOreman in his prime. It would take mind over matter to defeat him in Zaire. But he didn't understand he was fighting a genius. It is probably as weird as hell to fight someone when evrytime you try or think what to do, a left relentlessly is peppering your face.Like your his *****!

    Yo Rocky, I’m really happy for you; I’mma let you finish. But Muhammed Ali was the greatest of all time! Of all time!!!

    The Greatest Of All Time without any hesitation has to be
    Sugar Ray Robinson without question. That doesn’t mean
    You win every fight. It means guts, stamina and intestinal
    fortitude. Before Television it should be noted that Ray Robinson won over 100 straight professional fights.

    For the record: Joe Frazier was a diabetic his entire career.

    I consider Joe Frazier the embodiment of courage.

    It's the only sport I'll watch.
    I love watching millionaires beat the crap out of each other.
    I'd pay to watch Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg duke it out.

    Rocky was amazing. Not a big guy like some. Never lost right? My Dad liked him. And Dad was nicknamed Rocky too and kinda built that way. Dad won 11 of 12 fights in the Corps. But Dad revered Joe Lewis as the best of all time. I remember watching Marciano in a couple fights when I was a young kid with Dad. All heart.
    Ali was always my favorite, I like boxers more than sluggers, but as much as I didn't like Tyson, he could have been the best in his prime, not sure. He was just plain dangerous.
