He also did commentary on the first Ali-Frazier fight with Burt Lancaster.

I'd hardly call Frazier's style an emulation of Armstrongs', but i can see what Moore is saying. Pressure is the biggest similarity, but Frazier lacked the ringsmarts that Armstrong possessed.

Then again, not many can be compared to Armstrong.
