Default Joe Frazier vs Gerry Cooney

I know Joe would win, but how good are Gerry's chances of conceivably kayoing Joe?

I think Joe Frazier in his prime has no real problem with Cooney. I envision a fight similiar to Smokin' Joe's fight with Manuel Ramos. Ramos was a tall rangy heavyweight with a good punch and decent skills. It was a war in the 1st round with Ramos hurting Joe with a strong uppercut. In the 2nd round though, Joe stepped up the pressure and stopped Ramos. I don't think Cooney was any better than Ramos.

Cooney never had the tools from the outside to keep Frazier at bay, like a solid busy jab and movement. Even Ali struggled to keep Frazier off him enough to become effective during stages of their fights. While Cooney had the height and reach over Frazier, he was never the type to keep things at long range. Frazier KO7.
