Hey Joe...

Thanks for the memories.

from USA Today

Joe Frazier, a tough, underrated heavyweight boxer from Philadelphia and one of the sport's fiercest competitors who spent a lifetime playing second fiddle to his nemesis, Muhammad Ali, died Monday night from liver cancer. Frazier was 67.

Frazier's death was announced in a statement by his family, who asked to be able to grieve privately.

Frazier was diagnosed with cancer in late September, said his personal and business manager, Leslie Wolff. He had made several personal appearances since then.

RIP "Smokin'" Joe.
