When Frazier first fought foreman he was like 10-15lbs higher than his weight when he first fought with Ali. Thats how you know he wasn't at his peak.

The reason I mentioned it was that, from your post you seemed unaware that they had re-matched:

At any rate, I don't think ****y had much to do with it. Joe had basically one style and it was tailor made for George. When they rematched, Joe still used that style, albeit a little more cautiously, with similar results.

I don't think it would have mattered much when they rematched. The result would probably have been similar.

He would have a better shot the second time around.But I'm thinking someone like Young gets to Foreman before Norton would.

A 1969-71 Frazier would give Foreman a short but sweet fight. The outcome would be still be an early ko victory for George.
