    say a prayer or spare a good thought for Joe Frazier

    He's suffering terminal liver cancer and is in hospice. One of the true class acts of what is often a corrupt game, he never got the respect he deserved.
    Our local news just noted his condition (Channel Five, NBC, Cincinnati)

    Smokin' Joe! Be cool man, everybody loses the fight for their life eventually, but you held your head up.

    Smokin' Joe, what an athlete, what a man! It's a shame we all have to go and the renal cancers are some of the worst, I hope he at the very least doesn't have to suffer, barring a miracle that is. As far as the boxing statement, true and I blame Don King.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Re: say a prayer or spare a good thought for Joe Frazier

    From the Thrilla in Manilla the following conversation between Ali and Frazier.

    Ali entered the ring thinking he was fighting a washed up Frazier, and insulted Frazier often leading up to the fight, calling him a "gorilla." Deeply hurt by the comments, Frazier came at Ali with a vengeance. At one point Ali, gaining new respect for Frazier, whispered in his ear, "Joe, they told me you was all washed up."

    His response to Ali was classic, "They told you wrong, pretty boy."

    Ali has to go visit him.

    Thanks for posting this news Turtle. I will be happy to light a candle for his complete recovery.

    sadly I don't think this fight will go the distance. hopefully he will pass with the same dignity that he conducted himself as a fighter and a man. I wish it was different but I hope the man goes with the knowledge that many of us-fight fans or not, realized what a true champion he was

    It is only fitting to hear from Joe Frazier and the Knockouts.


    And just a little Smokin Joe.

    I'm very sorry to hear that. It's terrible to suffer such a long, drawn-out death.

    Also, I just head that Andy Roony died yesterday. He'll be missed.
