I know PF doesn't have a lot of boxing fans :wink:. But Frazier was the first guy to beat Ali - and Ali is one of his biggest admirers! I, for one, appreciate boxing talent - and this guy was one of the best.

RIP, Smokin' Joe!

I'm sorry for your loss. I know hubby will be sad to hear this.
Truly great at what he did.
The loss of any master is sad. Rest in peace Joe Frazier. A great athlete.

He is certainly made his mark on pugilistics. RIP Joe!!

With respect to Joe, Ali said, "He's the great fighter of all time, next to me.
Also speaking of Ali, Joe made a good nemesis for him..
I think Joe caught Ali a little off his game, in their first fight.
As I recall, Ali beat Frazier in both their rematch and rubber match bouts.

I'm not exactly a fan of boxing, but I've always admired Joe Frazier for his goodness and decency.

Rest in peace and rock on, Smokin' Joe!

The first Ali-Frazier fight was a classic, with a lot of political and racial overtones. I recall driving 50 miles to Roanoke, Va as a college student to watch it as a pay-per-view event. I had great respect for both men. Rest in peace, Joe.
