I imagine you're probably right. Floyd did very well against certain types of boxers, but pressure fighters were usually a problem for him, and I think that holds just as true in his prime as it did in old age..

I do think that a prime Patterson may have given Joe some trouble for a few rounds, but Frazier's relentless pressure and attack might break Floyd down a bit later.
