Gives me goosebumps watching this. i have the Ali vs Liston and rumble in the Jungle on DVD, and watch them regularly. its amazing to think that he was a rank outsider coming in to the Liston fight, then proceeded to make him look like an off balance child, its amazing. (Calzaghe was the first since this fight to make a quality oponent look that bad).
then the Rumble in the Jungle- who would volunteer to be George Foremans heavy bag for 7 rounds now, let alone in his prime?
and then to be able to not only soak up the punishment, but have the guts and strength to turn on the juice when the time was right. Rocky 4 looks less far fetched on paper. Amazing.
not to hijack, but it is my British duty to remind all that Ali was given a 12 second count when knocked on his a$$ by Henry Cooper, technicaly giving his record an extra loss, but the official records are what matters I guess
