By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing - Soon after Monday's late announcement of 'Smokin' Joe Frazier's death from liver
cancer, an out pouring of emotions of love have come from all corners.
One man who made stunning boxing history with Frazier, Muhammad Ali,
released a statement on the untimely passing of such a great legend.
Muhammad Ali: "The world has lost a great
Champion. I will always remember Joe with respect and admiration. My
sympathy goes out to his family and loved ones."
DID YOU KNOW? Here are some interesting facts about Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali
From Wikipedia: The Thrilla in Manila was the third and final famous
boxing match between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier for the Heavyweight
Boxing Championship of the World, fought at the Araneta Coliseum in
Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines on October 1, 1975.
The bout is often ranked as one of the greatest fights of 20th century
boxing, and is the climax to the bitter rivalry between Ali and Frazier
over who was the legitimate Heavyweight Champion. That situation came
about after Ali was stripped of the title over his refusal to join the
armed forces when drafted during the Vietnam War. Some years later,
Frazier petitioned President Nixon to restore Ali's right to box,
thereby bringing about the so called Fight of the Century between two
undisputed heavyweight champions in 1971.
