Default Re: Joe Frazier Vs. Evander Holyfield..Prime for Prime?

This is a tough one to call but I'll lean toward Frazier. It would be one hell of a fight that's for sure but I think Joe outhustles Evander for a decision win. If Evander could stick to boxing Joe from the outside for most of the fight then he stands a good chance but we all know how Holyfield can be prone to brawling. Frazier would draw Evander into a brawl due to his relentless pressure. Evander has good foot movement but it's not the evasive fleetfootedness of Ali. Joe would get to Evanders body, whip in a couple of left hooks and then the brawl begins as Holyfield would try as hell to punish Frazier for it. I see Holyfield leading on the cards up to about the 5th or 6th with Frazier slowly taking control after that. Frazier by decision in a classic.
