If you've noticed sometimes Frazier does a slight jump with both feet in the air when he's getting hit or when he's trying to avoid punches while moving his head and upper body, another Example when George Foreman knocked him down before Frazier was about to get knocked down he did that little jump.. Why does he do that? i dont see it necessary and i would think it would tire you out a little faster too

Because he has one of the most overrated chins ever. Its because he gets rocked.

BTW, ignorant people say Foreman lifted Frazier off the canvas with that punch..yeah thats it :rolleyes: , Frazier doesn't have legs when he gets rocked so thats why he does the jumping thingy.

it almost brings him back to reality after getting nailed, he does that little jump to get his legs back instead of punching yourself in the head(obviously a stupid move but many fighters do it when they get jolted) he just did a little hop to kind and bring him back to normal.

One time you said Frazier had a top 3 chin of all time, wich is the most redicilous, biased bull**** you ever posted.

How many times did he get rocked by a soft hitter like Ali?

i would say he has a better chin than tyson but thats my opinion, he was able to get a beating for 44 rounds against a very accurate Ali, sure he went down numerous times against Foreman but was never fully Knocked Out. Just those 2 fights right there should say enough about his chin.

not my fight but I have to say this, Ali rocked Frazier numerous times but just look at how many times he was hit. Ali was accurate..extremely accurate with his shots and I'll be damned if I were to get hit that many times and just stand in front of you. Bet your ass I'd be rocked all the time too. He may have an overrated chin but dont take that away from him he was still one of the all time greats in the heavy weight division, and he would fight you till the death bad chin or not.

here we go again! not even going to get into it with you because I might lose my cool. Go back and read every post ever written about this was Marciano over rated, was marciano a great, did marciano have a good chin threads, or even the Marciano vs Frazier thread that went on and on for days and you will see how many people over rate marciano's chin, you'll be amazed with the results. You seem to be one of the only people in this whole forum to think that.

No **** Frazier has as good of a chin as Tyson. Tyson got KO'ed by Douglas, who was a ****ing joke.

Frazier has only been knocked down by Foreman and Bonavena, two of the hardest hitting heavyweights ever. Frazier has also never been down for the count.

yea buster douglas isn't a really hard hitter, however getting hit squarely by any fighter with a halfway decent punch for that many rounds would surely KO nearly any fighter

I'm just saying James "Buster" Douglas in contrast to hardhitting heavyweights (such as Foreman and Tyson etc) wasn't a hard hitting heavyweight, however he did have a decent punch.

Get hit squarely by any semi-decent puncher for that long and your bound to go down

Prime Tyson would've killed nearly everybody he lost too though IMO

You know the circumstances regarding that knockdown right? 'He was offbalance, i hit him with a bad shot and he went down' - Chuck Wepner.. Always gives me a good laugh when someone suggests that Wepner dropped him legitimately... 'I hit him with the hardest body shot i ever landed on anybody' - George Foreman talking about Ali... he didn't get dropped by that thus i can't imagine him being dropped legitimately by Wepner.

EXcuses. The truth is, ALi was badmouthing Wepner, saying he was gonna wup him. Then he gets his ass knocked down by the bum he was gonna beat lol. Ali wasn't standing on 1 foot or anything like that. ALi was off balance BECAUSE of the punch you jokers :rolleyes: . Nice pic.

I'm pretty sure Ali knocked Wepner out in the last round...and he was definetly hitting him with jabs and right crosses all night. He couldn't miss with that jab-right cross combo on Wepner.

it actually was a knockout or at least should have been a knockout. wepner was sprawled on the canvas for the ten count, so it was a ko.

If you guys are going to debate what happened in a fight it would help if you actually took the time to watch the fight so you would know what the hell you're talking about.

For the record Ali staggered Wepner with a very solid left-right combination. As Wepner was on rubbery legs Ali throws another left-right, another left-right, three left hooks a left-right and a final right and dropped him into the ropes. From the moment Wepner touches the canvas until the fight is stopped Wepner is not up and it is actually 11 seconds exactly as Perez waves the fight off with Wepner getting up unsteadily. It was the first time in Wepner's career that he was floored. Try actually watching the fight for a change.

I've seen the fight years ago homer. But that was a long time ago, even before the Osbournes. Ali needed that many punches to stop a bum.

By the way, Holyfield dropped Tyson with a body shot. Left hook to the chest. I'm sure you didn't see that fight 'years ago.'

As a matter of fact, i watched the T-H fight yesterday haha. Ali-Wepner was on espn classic a long time ago. I did see it. Don't dissrespect me SABBATH, i have made more topics than you im sure, and they're very good. I remember you making big posts in my ''strongest fighter ever'' thread :D . And my other succeses like ''most complete fighter ever'' and ''wich boxing fights do you have?'' are all big threads with good discussions. So they do take me serious SABBATH.

We're going offtopic, so, Joe Frazier's legs gave up on him a lot of times when he got rocked, so he did everything he could to stay on his feet, and i guess that little jump helped him.

why don't you watch the fight before you post. i have the fight and have watched it about ten times. :rolleyes: ali threw alot of punches and staggered wepner. then ali threw a right hand that dropped wepner and wepner fell on the ropes and slid down to the canvas. wepner was down for at least ten seconds in the fight. geez, get your information right before you post. ;)

I'll have to go back and watch it to be certain; but I'm fairly sure that Wepner was counted out. I know he got knocked down from a vicious flurry and was exhausted to boot. If memory serves me correctly, he had one arm draped over the strands and was attempting to rise to beat the count when he collapsed and the ref waved it off. Like I said, I'm not 100% sure the ref reaced 10; but I'm 99.9% sure he did.

Butterfly, Rocky, the original, wasn't about the choreography...it was the story about the fighter and the chance of a lifetime and the realization of who he was. The script, and direction were superb. Best boxing film ever, IMO...no offenset to Dinero and Scorse and "Raging Bull".

The story was what made Rocky, not the stupid reality of the fighting.
