    Smokin' Joe Frazier reportedly battling liver cancer - News | FOX Sports on MSN

    Keep up the good fight champ

    Sad to hear Joe is not doing well. He was my favorite fighter when I was a kid. Joe always gave you 15 rounds of fight and never let up on his opponent. Not too pretty to watch but he was exciting

    Ali would hug and dance for most of a round and would throw a flurry of punches at the end of a round. Frazier made you fight the whole round looking to land that vicious left hook

    A real gentleman and one of the greats of his sport

    Those were great fights. Frazier is one of the best. Hopefully he overcomes this and gets a few more quality years to enjoy his retirement.

    Sounds like a TKO to me.

    Somebody throw in the towel.

    RIP, Joe.
