He's right.

Aside from both being short, come-forward heavyweights, Frazier was a definitive inside fighter whereas Tyson was far more mid-range puncher.

I rate Tyson's left hook as one of the best ever, right up
there with Frazier. I love how Tyson watched all those hours of
footage and knew his boxing history. I wonder what Frazier
thought of Tyson.

I agree with Tyson; and I've thought similar things in the past... I think Tyson pretty much got the "tyson clone" effect.. but with Frazier.

Any come forward fighter who throws hooks.. especially in the HW division is called a Tyson Clone.. Tyson was apparently being called a Frazier Clone.. Which is funny because watching a earlier fight of Fraziers the other day he was being referred to as a copy of Rocky Marciano.. so it is kinda expected.
