    Favorite fighter of all time (along with Sonny Liston), whenever I hear the word warrior, Joe Frazier comes to mind.

    no particular reason he just never appealed to me as a fighter

    I don’t hate the guy but I don’t like him either

    I also want to pay respect to one of the great Heavyweight Champions Smokin' Joe Frazier on his Birthday
    I had the pleasure of shaking Joes hand & chatting with him in Dallas. I said "Its a great thrill for me to shake the hand of the man who knocked Ali down" Joe grinned & said
    "Thanks man but the trouble was he didnt stay down did he but I still won ."

    I’ve never understood how someone’s favourite fighter can be one that there is little to no footage of.

    Each to their own.
