One of the greastest boxers of all times!  1971 - Frazier vs Ali - The Fight of the Century! 

RIP Joe Frazier.
There is only one success: to be able to spend your life in your own way.

It was on the news he was in hospice. Hopefully it was an easy passing. Sad.

He was a great talent. I loved watching him fight...especially M.Ali.

R.I.P. Smokin' Joe.  :(
