At just 67 years old, boxing great Joe Frazier has passed away after a short battle with live cancer.
Most famously known for his battles with Ali, including the Thrilla in Manila. Even Ali himself remember Joe fondly:
"I will always remember Joe with respect and admiration. My sympathy goes out to his family and loved ones."
Such a wonderful thing to say.
And despite having weathered the effects of all those matches, Joe still was active on the autograph and tour circuit.
He will always be remember as one of the greatest fighters of all time.
Our heart goes out to the loved ones who have lost you!
