‘Smokin’ Joe Frazier Passes Away at 67 [VIDEO]
If you’re a fan of U.F.C., say what you will. In my opinion, boxing is where it’s at! The boxing world lost a legend on Monday November 7th.
Former Undisputed World Heavyweight boxing champion Smokin’ Joe Frazier passed away tonight following a hard-fought bout with liver cancer. He was 67.
Best remembered for being the boxer who handed Muhammad Ali his first professional defeat in the “Fight of the Century,” Frazier and Ali would go on to tussle two more times, with Ali gaining the upper hand in both.
Of his legendary rival Ali said in the aftermath of their second fight, known as “Thrilla in Manila“: “He’s the greatest fighter of all times, next to me.”
