Frazier won't be able to lean on Holyfield like Bowe did. Say what you will about Bowe but he remains one of only 3 Lineal HW Champs who never lost by KO/TKO... Tunney and Marciano are the others.
Frazier didn`t `lean` on anyone. He bobbed and weaved his way in, once there his arms and head ket them there. he worked the body steady and hard.until their hands came down. I was not knocking Bowe, who I feel was a helluva fighter. I actually marvel at how effective he was inside giving his height.
