Maybe they'd have a shot against Ron Lyle,Jerry Quarry and Earnie Shavers,but I can's say with any degree of certainty.
Well they are pretty much my thoughts exactly apart from 2 fights. Unless Frazier changed his style against old Foreman then I think we could be open to an upset, and I also think Old Foreman would bang Norton early again, I've expressed my views on Norton that he had a good chin but not an ATG one. Even though Foreman was 40+ he still had incredible power and it would only be a matter of time before he caught Ken. It could follow a similar pattern to the moorer fight.
