You have to take into account that the amount of punches they Throw probably beats any heavy in history, and when was it you last saw 15 rounds at a torrid pace?
Holmes? ..... Hmmmm I struggle to find any of his 15 rounders that didnt have several awful rounds.
Ali? Sure. Frazier. Other than that hmmmm..... None I can think of.
So we are dealing with the Best of the Best if you are looking at 15 rounds at a torrid pace and I'm quite sure, but by no means certain, that several of the contenders BITD where not conditioned to go the distance at full speed.
