Default evre notice the similarities between...

joe frazier and jake lamotta? both short, extremely strong, great stamina, tough chins and good left hookers. both fought out of a low crouch. id say lamotta had a better chin but then again joe was in there with some huge hitters. that aside i think they fought very similar styles. any replies?

There are more similarities between Joe Frazier and Henry Armstrong as well as Rocky Marciano and Jake LaMotta (aside from punching power).

yes there are similarities between frazier and armstong and joe was happy about being called a heavyweigh hammerin' hank.
what lamotta lacked in marciano's punching power he more than made made up for with his chin,i also think he was a much better boxer.
