Default Foreman vs Frazier 1: Was there a Worse World Class Beating?

In terms of significance, their standings as all-time greats, and in terms of how ****ing EASY Foreman just hammered and drubbed Frazier all over the ring, flooring him numerous times, was there a worse all-time great beating like the all-time great beating Foreman gave to Smokin' Joe?

Keep in mind: All-time greats, top ranked fighters, ease of victory.

It should be a crime against humanity to let Foreman wear 8oz gloves in a boxing ring.

No but Hatton Pac comes close. Same styles match up too btw. Puncher vs pressure fighter. (although Hatton probably isn't an all time great). Hearns Duran is a pretty bad shit kicking too. Jones Toney was embarrassingly 1 sided.

What was Duran's rank and current standing at 154? I actually don't know this.

If we go purely on your three citerias

All-time greats, top ranked fighters, ease of victory.


Lewis-Tyson.

Lewis was champion, Tyson was rank 1.

They are both ATG'S.

Lewis won all but 1 minute of that fight.

Mercante could have warned Foreman for repeatedly pushing Frazier off of him.

How is Lewis taking 8 rounds to stop a shot Tyson as good as Foreman stopping Frazier in 2?
