    Yeah, big loss to Philly since he lived here and trained many young boxers on Broad Street at his gym.

    I always loved the look of his left hook.

    RIP Joe.
    Ali wouldn't have been Ali without you.
    I remember seeing Joe fight back in the day. That's when I still enjoyed boxing.

    I didn't realize he was ill. One of the greatest fighters of all time, I still remember all the schoolyard arguments about whether Frazier or Ali was the greatest. Just from I've read, it seemed that Frazier didn't find much peace in his retirement, that even decades later he was still fighting Ali's shadow. Too bad in many ways he never got his due respect. RIP Smokin' Joe
