Default Joe Frazier Vs. Evander Holyfield..Prime for Prime?

Ive always wondered being huge fans of both these great Champions just hoe this fight would go down. The more Ive thought about it I think Holy would have just been too much for Joe with the exception of Smoke finding a way to land that big left hook. other than that its the only Chance Joe would have. With Holy's great stamina, great chin, phenomenal combinations, and Heart he brought into the ring I believe on this night he comes out the better man!..

Awesome match-up. I'll take Holyfield by decision or late round KO.

I think Joe Frazier would get off the canvas early and pound out a close but clear decision over Evander.

Joe started slow and I could see Holyfield taking advantage and catching Frazier before he gets warmed up. I dont think he could keep Joe Frazier on the canvas no one could do that.

Holyfield let his opponents get inside. He had a good lefthook himself and he put punches together very well. With that said being on the inside with Joe Frazier is a bad place to be.

This fight would be at close quarters much of the time. Joe may take alot of punches but as the fight wore on I believe he would be the stronger man.

Holyfield would be worn down by the consistant body assault of Joe Frazier over the distance he would lose some steam and his offense would diminish.

Frazier W15.

People think Holyfield of '92 beats Frazier of '71? I can't agree with that. I see Frazier's relentless body attack and pounding left hooks upstairs slowly breaking Holyfield down en route to either a late stoppage or a points decision. Frazier was a strong dude, regardless of weight. If he can do as he pleases with Ali in FOTC he'll be able to bully Holyfield too, who never looked to avoid a tear up.

This is a great matchup. One of the best that can be made.

Holy is top class and I reckon if we have the fight under 200 he'd come out on top. But in the hw division with no limits I edge towards Frazier.

Stronger more powerful and that dynamite left hook. It will be close all the way through but at some point Frazier will land his shot and win a big 10-8 round that will see the difference between these two.

stop that bullshit. frazier is a midget who is slow as **** and has just a left hook. he even wasn't a big puncher. hollyfield in every way he wants beat the shit out of frazier. holmes, tyson, bonecrusher, bruno, ruddock, mercer, bowe, lewis, byrd, both klitschkos, haye and so on would **** up frazier.

frazier is the most overrated heavy of all time
