Re: ATG: Who Ranks Higher? Frazier or Tyson
Look at it this way, had it been someone else who knocked out the ordinary bunch of stiffs that Tyson did in the 1980's, I dont think nobody would have cared. It was how he won his matches that made him great. Frazier, on any given night, would have CRUSHED Tubbs, Bruno, Williams, Biggs, Thomas, Smith and Berbick. His wins over Chuvalo, Ali, Bonavena, Mathis, Ellis, Stander, all are equal if not superior to any of Tyson's prime wins.
Head to head, I like how Merchant put it once: "Tyson was an inch deep and a mile wide, Frazier was a foot deep and a mile wide." Frazier just had more in him, than Tyson ever did.
