Remembering Joe Frazier


Joe Frazier at Beaufort, SC's City Java & News

Man, Smokin’ Joe is gone.  Those were the days.  Boxing was something that we watched with awe, much like UFC today.  The heavyweight division in the time of Joe Frazier was unreal.  Muhammad Ali, Ken Norton. George Foreman, George Chuvalo, Jimmy Ellis, Jerry Quarry, and the great Smokin’ Joe Frazier.  He was one of the greatest ever, overlooked as he boxed under the shadow of Ali.  Make no mistake, he was good, very good.  Makes me very sad to see him gone.  He has been out of the spotlight for many years and this has brought back many memories.  I have two videos, one a highlight reel of his career, the other, an appearance on “This Is Your Life”, in this Muhammad Ali’s life, very funny.

 

 

About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.
