When Frazier passed away Monday (Nov. 7) of liver cancer, Muhammad Ali released a short statement: “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.”
Ali also released a statement upon Frazier’s entering into hospice care, saying, “”My family and I are keeping Joe and his family in our daily prayers.
Joe has a lot of friends pulling for him, and I’m one of them.”
Fellow boxer George Foreman posted to Twitter, “Good night Joe Frazier. I love you dear friend.”
Rest in peace, Smokin’ Joe.
