One tough dude. Not too many people would take Foreman on a second time, like he did.

Goes to show just how evil and maniacal cancer is; it is a scourge of mankind that needs

Smokin Joe, eh.
Seems like the end of an era, to me. Ali, Smokin Joe and George Foreman. These guys were the best.
Even tho our own Henry Cooper flattened Ali (no mean feat) he was never in the same class as these guys.
RIP Joe.

Family: Frazier Dies After Fight With Cancer
Published November 07, 2011| Associated Press

Philadelphia – He beat Muhammad Ali in the Fight of the Century, battled him nearly to the death in the Thrilla in Manila. Then Joe Frazier spent the rest of his life trying to fight his way out of Ali's shadow.

That was one fight Frazier could never win.

He was once a heavyweight champion, and a great one at that. Ali would say as much after Frazier knocked him down in the 15th round en route to becoming the first man to beat Ali at Madison Square Garden in March 1971.

But he bore the burden of being Ali's foil, and he paid the price. Bitter for years about the taunts his former nemesis once threw his way, Frazier only in recent times came to terms with what happened in the past and said he had forgiven Ali for everything he said.
