Joe Frazier: January 12, 1944 – November 7, 2011

One of the greatest fighters of all time, Smokin' Joe Frazier has died after an extended battle with cancer.

I was lucky enough to be around to see the three greatest fighters of my lifetime at their prime, Muhammad Ali, George Foreman and Joe Frazier.

Ali was all grace and technique, Foreman was a unstoppable brick, and Joe Frazier, well Joe Frazier could hit harder and faster then any man alive.

He was a true master of the ring.

Here he is in 1971 with his first epic battle with Ali......

One of the great fights of all time.
