Joe Frazier (Smokin Joe) dies at the age of 67, after his battle with cancer.  Frazier emerged as the top contender in the late 1960s, defeating the likes of Jerry Quarry, Oscar Bonavena, Buster Mathis, Eddie Machen, Doug Jones, George Chuvalo and Jimmy Ellis en route to becoming undisputed heavyweight champion in 1970, and followed up by defeating Muhammad Ali on points in the highly anticipated “Fight of the Century” in 1971. Moment for Life sends condolences out to his family.
