One thought on “R.I.P.

  1. Yes, wow!!!!, the memories of Ali/Cosell/and Smokin’ Joe Frazier. What a great threesome these guys were for Heavyweight Boxing. Etched in boxing history (when Ali defeated Joe in “The Thrilla’ in Manilla”, I think) is a phrase—coined by Howard Cosell— still repeated today whenever something/someone falls, “…and DOWN goes Frazier”. It’s iconic and so memorable. Joe was tough as nails and a great man. He’ll be missed!
