What if:

Cassius Clay* fought Wladimir (Volodymyr Volodymyrovych) Klychko in a Heavyweight Boxing Match in London**:

Q 1. Who would win in a 12 round, heavyweight bout?


* Think Clay, because when Ali was Clay he was faster, lighter, younger, and frankly better because he was not so fat.

** London, because unlike Vegas, it does not allow the P.E.D. xylocaine, commonly used by cheaters like Floyd Mayweather to unfairly numb hands artificially.

Big Note for above Q:
1. Both Clay and Klitschko are fighting IN THEIR own respective, physical primes.
2. Disregard the eras they fought in: "think both in their prime, facing off against each other".


Tale o' the tape:
Clay: 6 feet 3 inches / 80 inch reach
W. Klitschko: 6 feet 6 inches / 81 inch reach
