Default David Tua v Joe Frazier.

I favored Tyson against Joe with one or two 'ifs' and 'buts'.

Who do I favor here?

I've not even thought about it, so get me started.

Discuss.

Frazier UD. It would be a near shoutout. He's simply on a different level.

In terms of pedigree he is indeed on a higher level.

Still, I am intrigued.

It would be exciting. Tua is just is not nearly as skilled as Frazier. There is a rather large gulf in skill between the two.

Frazier simply had the higher workrate and would hit Tua and not be hit by Tua. He would'nt have the power to stop Tua though. Frazier wide UD.

I think Tua has a great shot of stopping him early. He is explosively fast, a huge puncher, has a great chin and Frazier plays right into his strengths .

Still I pick Frazier in a decision. This isn't an easy fight though.

I like Joe primerily for his punch output.
Still Tua has a punchers chance as I believe he is the harder puncher.Frazier UD.

I would go with Frazier in a wide UD. It would be a highly entertaining fight.

For action junkies, this would be the true FOTC.

It would be interesting if Frazier swarmed all over Tua, and the even shorter Tua were to pull a desperation "Bonavena" type of counterpunch as Frazier was coming in...
