Qualifications: In 1976, Antonio Inoki was presented with the opportunity to fight Muhammad Ali. The fight would be a wrestler vs. boxer match to be held in Japan's famed Budokan Hall. Originally the bout was intended to be a work, but Inoki was not satisfied. He wanted his match against Ali to be a shoot. Ali got scared and although his camp insisted that the rules be drastically changed in his favor, he only threw six punches during the entire fight. For many, this would be the most embarrassing moment of Ali's career and evidence of Inoki's true athleticism.
