Boxing legend Joe Frazier (akaÂ Smokinâ€™ Joe) peacefully passed away surrounded by family at his home in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Monday (November 7), only a month after being diagnosed with liver cancer.
The 67 year-old fought against the great Muhammad Ali three times back in the 70â€™s. Other boxing legend, Mike Tyson, took to his Twitter to honor the man and celebrate his accomplishments.
Mike tweeted, â€œToday is a sad yet remarkable day as we mourn the death of boxing legend Joe Frazier & honor him by celebrating his amazing accomplishments. Frazier and Ali were quintessential the apex of pedigree fighting in which each man would not give an inch until they were dead.â€
â€œTheir era was competitive fighting at the highest level. As a young fighter it has always been an honor to be compared to Frasier. My family and I are sending our sincerest condolences to the Joe Frazier family.â€
R.I.P. Joe Frazier.
