Muhammad Ali / Part Two

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian

In the second installment of my six in a series, I will answer a
question that is most often asked of me, with regards to Muhammad
Ali Nanumgothic download. That question is which – when was Ali at the height of his career?

First of all, I must say that it has been a blessing to witness the
greatest heavyweight champion of this era fight throughout his career (1960-
1981) 다운로드. In my opinion, Ali was at his pinnacle from a stretch after the 1st
Floyd Patterson ( November 1965) to his final defense against Zora Folley
(March 1967) before he was stripped of the heavyweight title 다운로드.

During those years he defeated, in order: defeated Floyd Patterson,
George Chuvalo, Henry Cooper, Brian London, Karl Mildenberger,
Cleveland Williams, Ernie Terrell and Zora Folley with the Williams fight
being his finest performance 다운로드.

Boxing fans will never know just how great Ali could have been,
considering he spent three and a half years, while still in his prime, in
exile from the sport (April 1967-September 1970) 중국 천둥 다운로드. I would be one to
speculate that those would have been his best years as a professional.

Later in his career came the Frazier, Norton, Foreman, Lyle, Bugner,
Shavers, Spinks fights. Ali, despite being past his prime, certainly made
many of those encounters, as we say in boxing – “super fights!” Two of
his three meetings with Joe Frazier were labeled as simply as: “Fight of the
Century” (March 1971) and “Ali’s greatest fight ever” (September 1975).

NOTE: I will display each part in a series of six on my personal
accounts of Muhammad Ali for viewing about every ten days.
