He was a great boxer.
Cancer must have been really advanced, when diagnosed, as he went quickly.

That's a shame, I wanted him to outlive Muhammad Ali.

Ali was racist toward Joe and just downright disgusting toward Joe even though Joe helped the sod out big time, Here's an interview with Joe in May this year, Full kudos to Apollo James Jackson.

Ali apologised to Frazier for his comments which, he claimed, were actually directed at both at Frazier and his all white management team.
Frazier was a warrior!
