o…Down goes Frazier… Down goes…
It’s amazing… I never thought that would be a literal statement. There are just those who you think will never die and, for me, Smokin’ Joe Frazier was one of them. Cancer, his life snatcher, doesn’t discriminate and definitely doesn’t have a respect of person.
We all know him to be one of the greatest, one of the most prolific, and one of the most feared heavy-weight boxers ever… And these things are all true. This champion was also a trailblazer. In reading information around his passing, I was glad to see sentiments like Floyd “Money” Mayweather offering to pay funeral expenses. To me, it resounded as an act of respect for someone who paved the way so Mayweather could be who he is today.
He was 67 and lived a rare and extraordinary life… Here’s to greatness and paving the way.
