Angelo Dundee was recently asked "Vitali Klitschko vs. Muhammad Ali, who wins?" after Vitali Klitschko's recent destruction of Tomasz Adamek. Here are a few excerpts of what he had to say:
"Vitali is great -- the best out there today but Muhammad would have beaten him by just fighting the way he normally did. Muhammad would have moved in and out, side to side, popped him with the jab and fast combinations. Vitali relies on the jab but Muhammad would have smothered his jab and hit him with his own -- time and again."
"Really, Vitali would never hit him with that right. He was too fast and would have easily seen the right coming. Muhammad's opponents could never believe how quick his reflexes were. No disrespect but Vitali would have been shocked."
"It would have been an ugly fight. Muhammad would have won an easy decision or maybe the ref would have stopped it as Vitali got banged up. And this is not to take anything away from Vitali. He is special. But it is just a matter of styles and Muhammad had the style to deal with Vitali."
I have to say I agree with almost everything Dundee says. I really believe Ali would beat both of the Kitschkos. However, I do not think he could stop either brother. He'd have to stick and move his way to a decision.
So my question to you guys is do you think either of the Klitschkos would beat Ali? If you had to choose who would win, who would you pick? Am I a nostalgic fool for believing Ali would beat both of them?
Please respond to the poll and give me your explanation why below.
