News: Joe Frazier Passes At The Age Of 67

You're a fool if you think all Smokin' Joe ever did was chase the greatest of all time...

On the contrary, Joseph William Frazier did far more.. he met Ali on the highest plane of their careers and he bested him. While Ali has enjoyed un-rivaled popularity in his retirement, a lot of folks forgot about the Philly slugger with the devastating left hand who pushed the greatest ever to heights that we'd seldom ever seen in boxing before..

Joe had his own legacy as well.. an Olympic gold medalist, a multiple heavyweight title holder, a 37-4-1 record all-time as a pro fighter, an almost too generous friend and a beloved family man who stood for something good is what Joe gave us...There'll never be another..
