R.I.P. Joe Frazier

Joe Frazier, former heavyweight champion, dead at 67 - ESPN


Just read an article on ESPN about fans willing to donate a kidney, but apparently he didn't want it. Hopefully he went peacefully.

Re: R.I.P. Joe Frazier

I have seen a couple of his fights with Ali on history/sports channels. Epic. Amazing fighter from an era of amazing fighters.

You aren't worth the water in my spit but, maybe, just maybe, you're worth the lead in my shotgun.

Re: R.I.P. Joe Frazier

Though i cant pretend to know the Bogart and Bacall refference and i was lost towards the end of Anderson's peice the first paragraph summed it up perfectly for me:

Some people mean more together than they do apart, whatever the stage. Churchill and Hitler. Bogart and Bacall. Ali and Frazier. And for all the deserved accolades for Muhammad Ali, I’ve always believed that each at his best, Joe Frazier, who died Monday night at age 67, was the better fighter. And the better man.
I have always thought Frazier was the better fighter and have always respected him much more then any other fighter. Hopefully espn will be running some classic boxing fights with Frazier late night like they sometime do so more of us can rewatch these great fights.

The Frazier/Ali frights were really the last of the great fights. The classics that you can watch are so much better then the fights you can see nowadays and i think current boxing is still living off of the legacy of pre 1980's boxing. I understand why they stopped allowing 15+ round matches but boxing has suffered greatly since title fights were reduced to 12. What those guys did back in the day was amazing.

Re: R.I.P. Joe Frazier

Joe was my man when I was a kid. Boxing back in the day was an event. None were bigger than Joe and Ali. I was very sad to hear of his passing.....
