I think something did go out in Fraziers brain, it was a shocking loss, Joe certainly went to sleep. Gunboat Smith said that Knockouts were still possible, but look how many more punches they take today, in Smiths day, KO's were a bit easier that's all. Even Gunboat Smith sparred in bigger gloves, they always did, but of course they fought a lot more than they sparred. Gentleman John Jackson was different but, he never trained for a fight in his life.
