Joe Frazier passes away from liver cancer
Frazier only found out about the diagnosis last month and by then the disease was too far advanced to successfully treat.
Frazier fought professionally from 1965 to 1981, capturing the WBA and WBC heavyweight titles. He defeated Muhammad Ali in 1971, which was the high point of Frazier’s career. Before turning pro, Frazier won a gold medal in the 1964 Olympics.
