R.I.P. JOE FRAZIER
By Joseph Bagnato: How you shut up the worlds biggest talker, break his jaw. Joe Frazier lost his brave fight with liver cancer november 8th 2011. Rest in Peace, set the boxing world a blaze, where theres smoke there is fire, and you were always smoking. Truly an inspiration, a punchers chance personified. Win or Lose every opponent got a taste of that big left, leaving manny of your opponent's faces covered in stretch marks from that left hook from hell. A true warrior, an elite fighter, a skilled tactician, an athlete of the highest caliber, a hero, and a beast. One of the best heavyweights of all time period. Would demolish most heavyweights and give any exceptions a run for there money despite fighting style. The world was blessed to bear witness to your craft, especially in regards to the epic battles in your war with Ali. Despite losing the trilogy you will forever have a part in history bearing it all in the intense third bout in Manilla under intense climate, you along with Ali absorbed more punishment than most could even endure to watch. A true man, it is a tragedy to say goodbye at the young age of 67. One of Phillies finest. You leave behind you a world that you had stand still when you dropped Ali when no one else had, a legacy carved in stone, and a record and old videos that are a test to your greatness.
