We're so sorry to hear about this.

Boxing legend Joe Frazier is seriously ill with liver cancer and is being treated at a hospice in Philadelphia.

The 67-year-old was the first fighter to defeat Muhammad Ali while defending his World Champion title in the 1971 "Fight of the Century" at Madison Square Garden.

Smokin' Joe Frazier went on to face Ali in two more bouts, but was not as lucky as his first encounter and was defeated in both.

Reflecting on his final encounter with Frazier in 1975's "Thrilla in Manila" match-up, Ali once said, "It was the closest I've come to death."

Anyone with kind words for the former heavyweight champion of the world can share their thoughts and prayers on joefrazierscorner.com.

Feel better, big guy!
