Default Heavyweight with the highest workrate

Been watching alot of older heavyweight fights recently and couldnt help but notice how busy some of these guys were.

Just wondering who everyone thinks was the busiest heavyweight fighter of all time.

Smokin' Joe just got done watchin' his career again. Just totally committed to the attack. The Manuel Ramos fight is one of my fav., it's just a left-hookfest until Frazier puts him down and makes him quit. Also, The Rock from Brockton. Watch the Moore fight and see Archie just OVERWHELMED BY THE UNCEASING MARCIANO ATTACK. Today, Go Bearcats! my alma mater

Funny you say that as the Marciano - Moore fight is the one that got me thinking about it.

smokin Joe and the rock come to mind but Tua and Ibaebuchi hold the record for most punches thrown in a fight, Vitali Klitschko works hard in a fight out of todays fighters.

Tua-Ibeabuchi broke the record set the previous year by Tua-Izonretei which broke the longstanding record of Thrilla in Manila, correct me if I'm wrong. However on a consistent basis, the first name that came to mind was Joe Frazier. He didn't have that nickname for nothing.

Smokin' Joe. Close thread. 3 minutes of work for every round.

Frazier was more intense than even Marciano, who was more deliberate.

Though I agree with Joe as a pick, the Ramos fight was just Sunday afternoon target practice.

No.

I don't even say it's not Marciano, but "by Far"? Given that the punch stats don't appear to back this and that Frazier brings a generally faster pressure anyway (and there's more to workrate than punches thrown per round), it absolutley is not by far and it sounds to me like it's Frazier.

I'll go for Frazier here. His workrate was a little more dynamic, intense and frenetic than Marciano's consistent and steady beat. Both stand out from the rest of the world.

Can see why some say Marciano, but I think Joe's ceaseless upper-body movement sees him edge it.
