Ali was a tough fighter. His punches had real power. He fought through pain too. I don't know how many fights he broke his hands in and finished the fight inspite of the pain. Then there was the Norton fight which he finished with a broken jaw....to mention nothing of the hammering he endured from Frasier and Foreman.

Take him in a bare knuckle fight? Not many could....not when he was in his prime.

Hell the professionals could not lay a glove on him, how could some guy in a bar?
