Default Re: How many wins would Frazier have vs

I have to say that I think Frazier gets underrated a lot. IMO, if he's not in your top 5, you're underrating him.

A great left hook was not all that Frazier had. However, if you have arguably the best left hook of all time, you don't need your right hand to beat most fighters. A sharp fast left hook is very difficult to punch to stop and throwing same does not expose a fighter to counter-punches the same way that throwing right hands does.

Frazier also had incredible stamina, a great chin, unbelievable heart, and was surpassed only by a few HW's in punching power. He also had great defensive and presure fighting skills.

On his best day, I give him a great shot to beat just about anyone.
