    R.I.P Boxing Legend Joe Frazier

    http://www.usatoday.com/sports/boxin...cer/51118056/1


    Joe Frazier died from cancer today at the age of 67. He was diagnosed with cancer only 2 months ago. Also known as 'Smokin Joe', he was one of the greatest fighters in boxing history. He is most known for 'The Fight of the Century' in which he defeated (at the time undefeated)Muhammad Ali to win the Heavyweight championship.


    Thoughts?!

    One half of boxing's greatest rivalry. Arguably the greatest rivalry between two competitors in any sport.

    I grew up with my dad teaching me about the heavyweights from before my time, lost count of how many times I've seen Frazier/Ali videos. Still love to watch Thrilla in Manila now.


    RIP Smokin' Joe.
