Not to discount that possibility, but I'd say Chavez has a better chin p4p than Frazier does, and is a little more refined on the defensive end too imo.
Furthermore, I'd say Pipino is a little wider than peak Foreman, though not by much.
All in all, a good analogy though and it could very well play out that way
