Muhammad Ali's "The Greatest". Boxers now can't hold candle to the "old Champ". Try to find YouTube videos of Pacquia, Mayweather etc...you'll notice the 'presence' difference
But I can't find a utube of his greatest, "I'll take you in the alley; I'll take you in the street"...
Ali's before my time so my comment by come off a little biased. The greatest heavyweight I have ever seen was Tyson. Granted, my favorite of all time is Holyfield so I couldn't stand Tyson. But between Tyson and Ali...I think most would give Ali the edge because of his stamina, footwork, and reach.
Lennox Lewis had a killer reach but the guy didn't have the feet like Ali. Ali couldn't hold a candle to Tyson in terms of power and slugging, so if that fight was ever possible it would have to come down to strategy. If Ali could manage to make Tyson chase him all over the ring then he (Ali) would've defeated him.
Different eras, rite? It'll give us migraine headaches...thanks 4 postin LIKE

Sugar Ray Robinson is easily the best in my mind. Before he turned 31 years old his record read 131-1. He was the former welterweight champion and never lost at this weight. He also was a five time middleweight Champion and beat several Hall of Famers and great fighters for 20 years.

I'll give my own answer after I see some of yours - I'm hoping, of course, that someone sees the 'overratedness' of the band I think is terribly overrated and sees the 'underratedness' of the band I think is terribly underrated.

You, no doubt, have heard the news that Muhammad Ali, the greatest boxer who ever lived and the Athlete of the 20th Century, has passed out of this life. Though I've never met him, I'd like to post some of my thoughts about him, and hope you will do the same.In 1977, a movie about his life...

I'm planning a hub about one particular actor in one particular scene of a movie. Without a visual representation of the actor in the scene the article would be meaningless, but no free or non-copyrighted photos appear to exist. To me this seems a classic case for Fair Use, as reflected in this...
