No i wouldn't say his offence was his defense his defense was his agility ect he didn't have a great offence though? he would dance around to not get hit a guy who's offence was his defense is like Henry Armstrong not Ali, i've never heard of offence while moving back and dodging punches, he had very bad technical defense though, in the 1st Frazier fight if he just kept his right hand a few inches higher he wouldn't of been hit with some of those lefts especially early on i mean it's not very hard to lift it up a little and protect your chin, he just didn't seem to want to do it
