Take a look at Wlad v Wach the other night and take into account that Wach is taller than Wlad, then factor in that Frazier was over three inches shorter than Ali , even when standing erect ,and he fought out of a half crouch.

Hitting below the belt is illegal too, take a look at Frazier's punches in FOTC,Ali had contusions on his thighs after that fight.
Ever hear a sqawk from him about that?
