The only two fighters Joe Frazier lost to in his boxing career were George Foreman and Muhammad Ali. On Monday night, though, he lost his fight with cancer and passed away at the age of 67.
Ali weighed in with his feelings in a short statement via CBS Sports, saying, “The world has lost a great champion. I will always remember Joe with respect and admiration. … My sympathy goes out to his family and loved ones.”
But his historic opponent was far from the only one who shared his feelings about “Smokin’ Joe.”
