Re: 'Smokin' Joe Frazier, former heavyweight champ, RIP
I can't imagine boxing ever again producing a spectacle like Ali-Frazier's three fights.
Ali really did humiliate him on tv, most notably when Howard Cosell was interviewing them both and Frazier finally snapped and he and Ali wrestled around while everyone tried to break them up.
What a wonderful quote Roy just posted about Joe forgiving Ali.
RIP, Smokin' Joe
