actually, frazier was a one handed bomber, with great head movement, and fitness. all the rest youve stated is from EXPERIENCE!! that was one of the criteria, so yes, frazier, as much as you dont like it, falls into that category.

what happened when he ran into a bigger, two handed bomber who had a simmilarly, robotic skill set?

Saw Chuvalo on the discovery channel a few weeks back on Ice pilots , look bloody good for his age and still fit looking ( no homo ) ,

The cat was very underrated , wins over a young Haye and Eubank x 2 indicates he was way more than the thread title suggests IMO , Calzaghe tells a great story regarding him and a young Naz Hamad when Naz was giving it the large one one night in the back of a limo in New York on their way to the WBO awards nighht , Naz was bragging about his own talent and richs and tried to belittle Carl , but Carl wasn't having any of it and silenced Naz after threatening to stop the limo and rip his "Little Midget " head off , Carl's words not mine lmfao .

poor smokin joe looked aged beyond his years before he passed, father time seems to be catching up with big george, but Chuvalo looks amazing and fit as a fiddle. Ironically he probobly had he hardest life post boxing of any of them. Wouldnt wish upon your worst enemy what that poor bugger went through.
