Smokin Joe.

Former world heavyweight boxing champion Joe Frazier is in hospice care with liver cancer, his manager says.

He says Frazier - also known as Smokin' Joe - was diagnosed with cancer several weeks ago.

"I would be a liar if I did not tell you it is very serious," Leslie Wolf told Reuters news agency.

The 67-year-old held the world title between 1970 and 1973. He was the first man to beat Muhammad Ali in 1971. He lost the next two bouts with Ali.

Mr Wolf said that Frazier was diagnosed with liver cancer last month and was now in hospice care in Philadelphia.

"Joe is a fighter. Joe doesn't give up," the manager said, adding that doctors and Frazier's team were "doing everything we can".

Frazier won the heavyweight title in 1970 by defeating Jimmy Ellis in New York. He held it until 1973, when he was beaten by George Foreman.

But the boxer is perhaps most widely-known for three great fights with Ali, including the epic Thriller in Manila in 1975.

Re: Smokin Joe.

He was a little over shadowed by Ali, but he was a great fighter all the same, Gods speed fella.

Yes very, I think he is broke too which won't help with his treatment.

Re: Smokin Joe.

One of my favorite fighters of all time, Ali said that Joe would never give up as long as his heart was still beating.
The guy came from absolutely nothing, his Father was a sharecropper in the 1940's in South Carolina... Joe left home at 15 and went to NYC, stealing cars and working in a meat packing plant in Philly.... Stallone got the idea of hitting sides of beef from Joes life..... it really bothers me that Joe never really had the respect he deserves, very few people came so far in life.
He has mine.
