R.I.P. Smokin' Joe Frazier

Boxing legend Smokin' Joe Frazier has passed on at the age of 67.  The Thriller In Manila fighter had a short battle with liver cancer and  died last night.  Mr. Frazier was once one of Muhammad Ali's biggest rivals, but Ali only had great things to say about him after hearing of his passing. Ali stated "the world has lost a great champion. I will always remember Joe with respect and admiration," Ali said in a short statement. "My sympathy goes out to his family and loved ones."

Rest In Peace, Smokin' Joe
