MUHAMMAD ALI-JOE FRAZIER “GREATEST RIVALS” IN HISTORY
YOU GET TO GO INSIDE JOE’S HEAD
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 were not, and then there was Evander Holyfield-Vaughn Bean, an 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!
MUHAMMAD ALI & JOE FRAZIER IN THEIR OWN WORDS
Besides Ali & Frazier, Robert Guerrero was a “hot” topic as well, and the manager of WBA champ Austin Trout, Bob Spagnola, a favorite on Ring Talk the guest list, Bob and I, we had a blast talking old school and new!
