    Default Smokin' Joe Frazier Gravely Ill

    Nothing being officially reported yet, but I just got a text from my godmother who shares several mutual friends with him. What a shame, such a great boxer.

    Yep, that's usually the case when you're in Hospice.

    Fans offer to donate liver


    PHILADELPHIA -- Former heavyweight champion Joe Frazier is battling the liver cancer that has put him under hospice care.

    The 67-year-old boxer sleeps for most the day but is coherent when awake, his personal and business manager said. Leslie Wolff, who has been the fighter's manager for seven years, said Frazier has been flooded with get-well messages from former boxers and fans. Wolff tells The Associated Press some fans have offered to donate a liver.

    "There is evidence that there are certain people that fight much harder than other people, and in doing so, they last longer," Wolff said Monday. "They have the heart of a champion. Joe ain't no quitter. Even in this struggle, he's showing people you don't give up."

    Frazier was diagnosed last month with the disease. His manager said the boxer had been in out and out of the hospital since early October and has been receiving hospice treatment the last week.

    Side note: He had a small club just up the street from where I live about 16 years ago. Saw him there once, but never go to meet him.

    Yes, he is gone.

    Farewell Joe. The people of this area loved you and all the good stories of how a kid from Philly lived his dream. RIP.

    Man, what a fighter. That heavyweight era of Ali, Frazier and Foreman brought us the best fights in boxing history. RIP Smokin Joe.
