lennox Lewis is over rated ,if you had lennox Lewis at his prime and joe frazier in his prime joe frazier would most likely be the winner ,you see joe frazier lost against george foreman because he was scared of him they already had a punch up before the fight ,now ken norton could hit just as hard as Lewis also joe frazier never stoped ,do you really think lennox could of done a thriller in manila ,no i don't think so and onother thing the seventies was one of the hardest times in the heavyweight ,lennox had it easy ,beating an old Tyson and an old holyfield if he fought eny of these guys in there prime he would have been destroyed

They did fight, and Lewis knocked out Tyson in 8 rounds in 2002.

If you mean in their respective primes, i just don't know. i could make arguments for both, but i still might go with Lewis.

Who is a better boxer Ali or frazier?

In their first fight in 1971, "the fight of the century", Frazier clearly showed that he was better than Ali at this time, winning the fight by unanimous decision. He showed much better boxing skills than Ali and dominated Ali after the 3th round to the 15th, knocking Ali out at the beginning of the 15th, but Ali got up after counting to 3(even though Ali was 10 pounds heavier and 4 inches taller than Frazier, plus Frazier was blind on one eye). In their second fight in 1974, which was unspectacular and boring, Ali won by unanimous decision, because he showed better boxing skills. And finally in their third fight in 1975, "the Thrilla in Manila", it was a massacre between the two. Ali was close to death in the 14th round and both were depleted. Frazier's trainer Eddie Futch decided to stop the fight after the 14th round rather than risk a fate for Frazier. Frazier protested stopping the fight, shouting "I want him boss," and trying to get Futch to change his mind. Futch replied, "It's all over. No one will forget what you did here today", and signaled to referee Carlos Padilla, Jr. to end the bout. Unknown to Frazier's corner, Ali had walked back to his own corner after the 14th and instructed his trainer to cut his gloves off. Ali later said that "Frazier quit just before I did. I didn't think I could fight any more." So when you look at their fights I have to say that Frazier would have won two of their three fights, when there wouldn't have been his trainer in the 3rd fight and he might have killed Ali in the "Thrilla in Manila". The problem is that George Foreman destroyed Frazier in both of their fights, but Ali defeated Foreman easily in their first and only fight. But overall, despite the fact that Frazier was much smaller than Ali, less weighing and blind on one eye, I would say that Frazier was the better boxer of them two. But that's just my opinion. After all, I think that Joe Frazier was Ali's hardest enemy.
