Default Gene Tunney vs Joe Frazier...........

Tunney had an iron chin, terrific footwork and lateral movement, a great jab and imo is the personification of the 'sweet science'.

Frazier was your typical pressure fighter. A merciless body puncher who possessed a dynamite Left Hook and a 'suspect chin'.

How do you see this fight playing out?

IMO I see Tunney dancing his way to a 15 round decision.

I see Tunney winning the early rounds,and Frazier to start smoking in the middle rounds and going to the body with some wicked shots.Then going to the head and body fighting at a very fast pace,not giving Tunney room and time to throw his punches.

Frazier starting to wear Tunney down in the late middle rounds,and stopping him in rounds 10-13.

Tunney didn't have anything to keep Frazier off of him.Frazier fought at a pace that would wear down Tunney,combined with his deadly body shots.It would just be a matter of time that Tunney would slow down,and then it would become a feast for Smokin' Joe Frazier.

Suspect chin? lol, people who say that crack me up.

Frazier would KO Tunney inside of 3 rounds, probably round 1.

Although i do respect Tunney, i think Frazier would be right there in his face throwing bombs, how many left hooks "one of the ATG if not the best left hook" from Frazier can Tunney take ? I see a KO 10 by Frazier...

To be honest,I just don't see how frazier could beat Gene Tunney.


frazier is too thick,crude and limited to beat a truly well schooled boxer like this.


Grunting,snorting and waving your head around like a remedial student may work against a boxer coming off of a long layoff.but it's not going to work against a fresh,sharp,skilled boxer like Gene Tunney.



Too much skill and too much class.

How did you come to that conclusion?

How many Greb fights have you seen?

Or did you base your judgement purely on articles?

If so, I will discount your comment as nothing but an irrelevant assumption.

Funny thing is this post cracked me up too. A past prime Jack Dempsey is still a much bigger puncher than Smoking Joe. He was also arguably a much more effective pressure fighter than Smoking Joe also. We all know how both Tunney's fights with Dempsey turned out.

Yet you beleive Frazier steamrolls Tunney in 1 round?

Laughable.

Also to touch on the point of Frazier's suspect chin. Without a doubt his chin is suspect. How many devastating punchers did he fight in the Golden Era of the Heavyweight division which consisted of some of the biggest punchers in history and how did he fair against them?

Incorrect. He had a brilliant stiff jab and terrific lateral movement. A prime Tunney had better footwork and lateral movement than anyone Smoking Joe ever fought, including the 71' version Ali.
