    'Smokin' Joe vs 'The Duke'. Who wins in the battle of the left hooks? I see Frazier pressing forward & grinding down Morrison in a hard-fought battle, where both men touch the canvas (similar to Morrison-Ruddock) but Frazier comes out on top by 6th TKO.

    Frazier easily a couple classes above Morrison. Morrison probably hits harder but Joe get his hook off and reloads it faster. Faster than any other HW IMO. That combined with his better head movement and getting under Tommy's shots gives Joe a KO in 5-6 rds

    I'm fairly certain that Frazier can do as well as Bentt.

    This would be a very competitive fight early on because of the clash of styles. Both men would close in on each other and Morrison is much more dangerous offensively, wouldn’t be surprised if he drops Frazier. Frazier is superior in every other way and after 4 or 5 rounds Morrison becomes Frazier’s punching bag

    Nope, I just see Frazier as overrated.

    He doesn't have to be. He has a way better left hook than Foreman and he's faster

    No he isn't. Morrison is stronger, faster and has a more devastating left hook.

    Could go either way. You'd have to favour Frazier on pedigree but Tommy was a powerful and accurate puncher. I think he's got the bigger punch but maybe the worse chin. He could win this early in a shootout.

    He ain't better than Frazier on the inside, nor does he have Frazier's upper body & head movement. Plus he's chinny & won't be able to take too many left hooks up close.
