Thrilla In Manila - RIP Smokin' Joe Frazier

Boxing legend Smoking Joe Frazier passed away yesterday after losing the battle against liver cancer.

A giant of the sporting arena & someone who got way too much crap from a peer who he had beaten in the Fight of the Century in 1971.

Those who are wondering wot the fuss is all about, please watch the absolutely BRILLIANT documentary below (made by the same team who gave us Oscar-winning When We Were Kings about The Rumble in The Jungle).

Remarkable film about possibly the most brutal fight in the history of pugilism.

Smokin' Joe Frazier - a truly great champion. RIP . . .
