No, I don't think Frazier could win. A very entertaining slugfest-while it lasts. Joe would end up getting Smoked by the harder hitting Iron Mike. Tyson by KO in 4.

I dont see any area where Frazier has a substantial advantage,except maybe stamina,and heart ,but as he was a slow starter ,and Tyson came out like Dempsey , these plusses would not be a factor .

If Frazier could somehow survive into the late stages of the fight he has a shot ,but he wouldnt imo.
Frazier had more than his hands full with Bonavena who was a clubbing brawler,Joe couldnt drop him in two fights and Tyson is 3 times the fighter Oscar was.
Frazier wore you down with an accumulation of punches, he only faced one real big banger and got decapitated.
Tyson took the shots from bangers like Ruddock and Bruno,and even when past it, it took a lot of shots to finish him off.
Right on. You took the words right out of my mouth.

As I've said before,Frazier's only chance is not to get hurt too much in the early rounds,and take Tyson deep into the latter stages. Joe would stop Tyson,but it's far more likely that Tyson would jump on Frazier straight away,and ko him within three rounds.

I think he definitely has a chance against Tyson. If he keeps on top of Tyson and doesn't allow him the space to get his hooks and uppercuts off and frustrates him in the early part of the fight. This could lead Tyson into making mistakes and allow him to put his own left hook into action.

Tyson would definitely be favourite and I would fancy him to take care of business but Joe certainly has a chance. Prime Tyson when he was using his head movement and defensive skills to set up his attack, was pretty much the perfect fighter. I have always felt that to beat prime Tyson you needed a good jab to upset his approach and not allow him to get set. This is not a tactic Frazier employed.

I would take Tyson by ko in what would be a great war for as long as it lasted.
