MUHAMMAD ALI-JOE FRAZIER “GREATEST RIVALRY” IN HISTORY

Muhammad Ali-Joe Frazier


San Francisco, CA- There is nothing quite like hearing Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier talk about one another. Sometimes it is funny, other times it is cruel. But these men are glued to each other for all time as historians in 500 years, that’s right in 2513, people will still be talking about the three Ali-Frazier encounters.

To some Joe Frazier was a great fighter and a good man. In my opinion, an Olympic Gold medal and the World heavyweight championship combined are enough to be called “great.” But the Joe Frazier I remember was bitter, charged fans for autographs at events where other noted champions did not, and then there was Evander Holyfield-Vaughn Bean IBF title tiff in Atlanta back around the turn of the century. Working for Don King on the International TV, I went into Bean’s dressing room and both Frazier and Butch Lewis, Bean’s promoter were drunk!
