Yeah, Lyle really didn't rise to prominence until well after Frazier had lost the belt. After that Frazier was focusing solely on rematches with Ali and Foreman.

Default Quarry handled Lyle easily

and after also beating Shavers, it was Quarry who got the Frazier fight, not Lyle. At that point, Lyle did not have one big win over any young, decent heavies. He did not deserve a fight against Frazier at that point.

I never heard anything about Joe avoiding Lyle. Lyle really didn't get to the top til later in Joe's career but if were earlier Joe would have beat him.

That was a he'll of a shot from Shavers he got up from?

I guess his chin was inconsistent more then anything. Yeah he showed a good chin in the Lyle fight but I can't talk about his chin in the Bonavena fight or in the Ali fight.

99 percent chance of Ron NOT kayoing Joe.I could see Ron flooring Joe early, but late in the fight, Joe really lays it on for a 12th round stoppage.
