    I love Frazier's movement. It looks like it would eat up some endurance but it just looks so natural and effortless for him.

    Never saw this before - thanks!

    Jeez, Joe was just a machine, wasn't he? But that style and movement is for a younger man; like Tyson, I just can't see that still working in an older fighter ... only so much gas in the tank, and age is something that can't be bargained with. No denying how effective it was for him, though -

    With all the movement of Frazier, it's hard to believe he was a slow starter. That'll tell you the engine this guy had.

    Norton actually using his legs lol I guess doing his best Ali imitation. Joe just seems to be working on his defense not letting his hands go. His pressure is really something to appreciate

    Fantastic footage, Joe was very deadly with that left hook. I love watching this footage but also glad that they never met for a purse, that was true friendship and loyalty to each other, something that is rare these days, neither sold out, two great fighters and men.

    amazing footage, thanks for posting.

    No wonder guys like Norton and Holmes became as good as they did, sparring with these legends like Joe and Muhammad

    Norton-Frazier is one of the most fascinating hw matchups to me.

    Ken fighting at like three times his normal pace because he knows he's only going a couple rounds.

    Over a scheduled 15, I can't see Norton winning.

    I would agree. I think Smokin Joe wears him down. They are both come forward fighters. I think Norton-Frazier would be super competitive but Joe would wear him down.

    Your right. Joe was applying that pressure but he wasnt unleashing that hook the way we know he could.
