It has been reported that former heavyweight champion Joe Frazier has been diagnosed with liver cancer. Joe is currently in hospice care but has not yet been told how long he has left to live. The 67 year old was the first man to ever beat Muhammad Ali in The Fight of the Century back in 1971.
Frazier’s manager Leslie Wolff explained, "We have medical experts looking into the all the options that are out there. There are very few. But that doesn't mean we're going to stop looking. We appreciate every prayer we can get. I've got everybody praying for him. We’ll just keep our fingers crossed and hope for a miracle."
Joe Frazier was one of the most devastating punchers in boxing history and he used his powerful left hook to finish many of his opponents. In The Fight of the Century against Muhammad Ali, Joe floored Ali in the 15th with a powerful left. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Joe Frazier.
