“Smokin’ Joe” Frazier had a very good boxing career, 32 wins, 27 by knockouts, only 4 losses, 1 draw, earned a gold medal for the United States in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. He was a boxing champion several times.

But he’ll forever be linked with Muhammed Ali, the people’s favorite boxer for the “Thrilla in Manila” where he was beat to almost death when he couldn’t see.

Frazier lost his last fight on Monday night after a brief battle with liver cancer at the age of 67.

Frazier became the first man to beat Ali at Madison Square Garden in March 1971, when he knocked him down in the 15th round.

Frazier had been bitter towards Ali for years due to public humiliation before, during and after their fights but came to terms with everything and had forgiven his nemesis over the years.

In their final fight in Manila back in 1975, they traded punches like champions should. Frazier battled for 14 rounds but his trainer Eddie Futch stopped him from coming out for the final round due to him not being able to see.

Frazier was slowed over the years and had slurred speech by the toll of punches taken as a boxer. But he still went to autograph shows and had fun meeting the many fans that he had.

Frazier was small for a heavyweight at 5’11 1/2 and 205 pounds.

Joe has taken pride over the years that his daughter, Jacqui Frazier-Lyde has become a boxer. She has a 13-1 record despite being 48 years old . And yes, he nemesis is Laila Ali, the daughter of Muhammed Ali. Jacqui started boxing at age 38 and boxes in-between being a lawyer in Philadelphia.
