No, they were both sluggers. Its just that Fraziers style was perfect for Foreman to beat. Foreman had big uppercuts and liked to punch from his chest. And where was Frazier? Down low and in front of his chest! But overall Foreman for me. Frazier had his left hook and and abiltity to take a punch, and thats most of what won his fights. Don't get me wrong Frazier was great, and always will be. But Foreman had power, size, and reach.

Foreman still is one of the best ever. I thought it was the right call for the ref to call the fight after Foreman was knocked down. Foreman was to tired of pounding away on Ali on the ropes, and Foreman would have been hurt if they let him continue that tired.

Foreman was taller, smarter, and bigger when he came back. He was 6'3 in his prime, but in the 90's he was 6'4, he weighed around 220-235 in his prime, in the 90's he weighed 150-160, in his prime his bicepse were 17'' like most, in the 90's his were 20''! So he was bigger, smarter, and taller.
