The only person who "bulldozed" Frazier was Foreman. And his defense was good enough to make Ali miss repeatedy in their first fight. The size thing holds no water because we can find dozens of example of little guys beating larger guys in history.

Vitali is physically huge, has a chin and stamina, and boxes well enough to virtually never drop a round.
A tough fight for anyone, no doubt. But lets not get to excited about him hardly ever dropping a round. He was hardly ever in the ring with good competition so that has a lot to do with it. Again, the size things means little. I remember Chris Byrd being competitive for 9 rounds before Vits quit, and I would put him antwhere near an all time great list.
