  1. a lot of the younger generation of men are pressured when asked about ali, many of us simply just dont know what to say… lmao. even fighters, rarely watched him, unless they were of that generation. ali was simply marketed as the greatest, but joe frazer was actually the greatest, ali was simply one of the greatest.

    • I was more aware of Ali's social activism through my Junior High's history program, than his boxing. DJ didn't pander to the audience when it would be the easy thing to do. Hell, even Donald Trump gave lip service to Ali's impact.

    • +pilsung26 if you watch joe frazier vs ali, he beat him so bad their first fight. ali could barely touch him. in an interview ali said he was actually marketed as the best, but he admit he wasn't the best. he was a talker/fighter, and boxing world needed that at that time. he was a good boxer too, great at jabbing and moving.

    • MrThemorningsun And Forman whooped Joe Frazier twice while ali beat him easily, whats your point? Ali is the Greatest for what he did for the World he stood up for his people and the way he changed peoples perceptions of the Muslim people is what made him a Hero and why he is universally beloved

  3. this dude is a bum a go up and fight dom i think mcgregor is the only one left with balls who will go up and down to test his self win or lose dj is content with what he has thats not a champ

    • No, he was a loving man who believed in equality, he has taken back the racist things he said about whites in the past. u can't blame him for saying that when he grew up with white people abusing him, show some respect to a legend and cultural hero, R.I.P Muhammad Ali.

    • +Louis Harris Hi Louis. From a meritocracy standpoint then yes Joe B should be fighting DJ now. From an entertainment standpoint though I can buy into a TUF winner from around the globe fighting DJ. IMO the UFC can easily sell that vs. a trilogy fight Joe B.

      All that aside though I'm really looking forward to Joe B vs. Cejudo. I'm pulling for Joe B on that one. a decisive win and he should get a crack at DJ.

    • +KravaLLT i assume you're just someone trying to troll cause of your picture but for others reading your nonsense and thinking you're right, MM is the most improved fighter, watch his old fights and compare it to now. He went from a competitive fight with Dodson to pure domination.

    • +KravaLLT you're right I can assume whatever I want no need for your stating the obvious and I don't need your permission to think that dj would give Dom problems. The rematch between the two would for sure be a super fight and regardless of your seeming future telling ability Id like to see it happen.

    • @weilding excalibur @bulk rogan : i hate when people use this reason to say MM will win today. not saying cruz will win or MM but hasnt cruz improved too? becoming an analyst and learning every technical part of fight game? also able to review everything hes ever done wrong and study every fighters techniques extensively. its unfair to only say MM improved. Both have improved and there is no clear winner still. each has an even chance but IMO i believe cruz will still be too hard to hit and has the size. both are dominant champions in there own respective weight classes and im a huge fan of both.

    • +Cloud Strife I never said DJ would win, I don't know I have no magical ball to tell me such what I do have is what I know from following the sport and DJ has improved a lot he has a loss to Cruz and he was "asking"(dunno seemed like he was trying to get buzz cause he was asking for a lot for his level of popularity) for a super fight add that to the fact that he's fucked everyone in his division up and it seems like it'd be a cool fight for me as a fan to watch. Just cause I like DJ doesn't mean I think he'd win.
