Asside from Bob Foster who just could not take a heavywieght punch, Frazier tended to grind guys down. Maybe Quarry is a bad example, but Frazier threw and landed plenty of lefts on guys like Mathis, a washed up Machen, Scrap iron Johnson, Bugner, Bonevenna, Foreman and others. An " 8.5 " to me gets guys out of there a bit sooner when they keep landing their best and scores more than Frazier actually did.
