Getting knocked down that many times in such a short time of space is not just a matter of one style being too difficult to overcome.
Has anyone ever taken that many consecutive punches from a post-prison Ali and stood on their feet? Ali's not-often-praised punching power, while not ATG power, is enough to lend itself as credit to Frazier's chin.
