However, Frazier was susceptible to huge punchers, as the Bonavena fights attest. On the other hand, Ringo couldn't close the show. Bottom line: no one ever remotely did what Foreman did to Smokin' Joe.

The above reasons suffice, though.
What Foreman did to Frazier was so great that it ultimatley changed Fraziers whole ranking
