Favorite Frazier KO

F razier vs Ellis I:  Ellis is a world class fighter, and this was for the belt vacated by Ali.  Ellis would probably beat almost anyone today. 

Watching this fight is like watching a tree get chopped down with a blunt sledgehammer.  Rarely do you see someone take such a sustained and powerful assault in the ring.
