Default How would Frazier fare in today's climate?

He's got a lot of heart, but in today's world of larger, stronger heavyweights, how would he cope?

Have to agree. He's got more heart than any of the current heavyweights. I have just seen a documentary about the Thrilla and Manilla, and apparently he was practically blind in his left eye before the fight even started!

Joe Frazier would knock out every single heavy out there right now.
He's in a totally different class .

Looking at frasier's record and watching several of his fights,

he fought and beat some top heavyweight(Ali,Chuvalo,Ellis,Quarry)

fighters. In addition to this, joe had the courage and heart of

a champion. when fighting George Foreman the first time, joe had

the balls to rise from the canvas six times before the referree

stopped the fight. Now, who in the heavyweight division today

has that type of mentality besides holyfield. When tyson was

knocked out by d.williams he just laid there on the canvas and

was counted out. So, the answer to your question is; Joe frasier

would fare pretty well in today's heavyweight climate and would

sure be tough enough to beat fighters like ruiz, byrd,w.klitscho,

McCline,etc,etc.

Smoki'n Joe will be the undisputed Heavyweight Champ. Today's fighters are bigger but are never competitive after the 6 round . . . as compared to the old days where heavy weights slug it out like the lighter divisions until the last bell of the 15th round.

I knew what the question was it was just a stupid one. the question should really be how many of todays fighters would survive in Smokin Joes era. The deepest era of talent. He would have whupped them all.
