Can anyone tell me the difference between the usage of "regard as" and "regard to be"

Example:

1. Many regard Ali as the greatest ever.
2. Many regard Ali to be the greatest ever.

Which one of the above examples is correct?

Thats what even my knowledge is. But I encountered a sentence somewhere that used regard to be", thereby complicating my life a little bit :(

What was the source?

Manhattan staff (and Aristotle SC Grail) says that 'regard to be' is always incorrect.

Thanks for the links.. But see this question:

Due to the critical acclaim generated by his recent exhibit, the artist is currently regarded as one of the most promising sculptors in America.

A. the artist is currently regarded as
B. the artist is currently regarded to be
C. the artist currently regards himself to be
D. many regard the artist to be
E. currently is the artist regarded as

The OA is B, where "regarded to be" is used. The website where I saw this Question said this comes from Kaplan. I have not verified it though..

'Regarded as' is correct idiom usage. As A and B differ only in idiom usage, A must be the answer. IMO Wrong OA.
