Tua, Shavers, Foreman, Liston, Louis, Dempsey and a hundred other heavyweights would have stopped Ali if they landed as many punches as Frazier did against Ali, they wouldn't need even half as many clean punches Frazier landed in that fight to achieve that. Same as they would have knocked out cold all three on the same night, Quarry, Chuvalo and Ellis, if they landed as many punches on them as did Frazier.
Intersting take. I mostly agree with it.
