Characteristics of Ali's enemies

Henry Cooper

Conservative, almost does not move around the ring. His left hook, Henry's beater, is dangerous. Cooper can easily be knocked out.

Seki Listok

He prefers to work on the body. Favorite combination: a straight hit - a hook - a hook. Very aggressive, but slow and not hardy.

George Chuvalo

He follows you with short steps. The speed is average, but the blow is powerful, especially straight. She keeps her distance perfectly. Wait, when he is exhausted, and then hurl at him a series of blows to the head, leading to a knockout.

Joe Frazier

Excellent moves, weak in defense, but dangerous in attack. Strong left, well put left hook. Practically not a knockout, win it on points.

Jimmy Ellis

Leaves from blows, tirelessly circling near the enemy. Favorite combination: straight - straight - cross Use powerful straight strokes against him.

Bob Foster

Very quickly moves around the ring, strikes immediately after the stop. Try to get ahead of him with a stroke. The impact strength of Foster is average, the speed of impact is also average. Tends to combinations with the use of a strong straight blow.

Keck Norton

Delayed, but well organized defense. He prefers a melee, and uses the most powerful uppercut in the clinch. Use blocks: Norton's slopes and dives lead to a series of good shots at close range.

Chek Vepner

Uses painful pinpoint strokes, preferring to drive you into a corner. Impose him a fight, since Vepner's blows are rather weak.

Peon Spinks

Aggressive, especially after knockout. The speed is average, but the blow is heavy. Excellent command of the left. Crown combination: double - straight. Defend and wait until it reveals itself. After a strong blow, Spinke immediately stops.


  • The sound of the glove being blocked differs from the sound of a successful stroke. It helps to fight.
  • While striking, do not release the button ahead of time, otherwise only deceptive movements will be obtained. If your boxer is tired, the time needed to strike is increased.
  • One of the most important parameters of the strike is the distance to the enemy. Standing far away, you are wasting your hands, but too close blows are not effective (exceptions are uppercuts and clinics). Optimal distance is represented in one step.
  • Move more. Pursue the enemy, try to drive him into a corner. And when your energy is close to zero, avoid the enemy.
  • Try to anticipate the enemy's blows. If he is idle for a second or two, squat!
