    If you like boxing I recommend Facing Ali, When We Were Kings, or the ESPN 30 for 30 film on Holmes vs. Ali. I don't think Frazier was ever really given his due after losses to Ali and Foreman. He was a great heavyweight when the division had numerous tough, tough fighters (Shavers, Norton, Quarry, Chuvalo, Lyle etc...) For me , the late 60s to late 70s was a golden age for the Heavyweight Division.

    Smokin' Joe! Great fighter with lotta heart...just a little small for a heavyweight and had no chance against a monster like Foreman...very much the Evander Holyfield of his day, an undersized man with a big heart who took on all comers

    Good call, JohnHannahrulz.  When We Were Kings was very good.  I think I still have the VHS tape somewhere, lol!  As a matter of fact, I just rewatched the 30 for 30 Ali/Holmes again the other night.  Prett sad.  Ali was gone at that point and to think he fought Trevor Berbick a year after the Holmes fight is even more sad.

    I was too young to watch Ali's fights while he was fighting but being a huge boxing fan I have probably watched half his fights on video or tv replays over the years.  ESPN used to show replays of the classic fights when I was a kid and I watched a lot on there.  Boxing sure isn't what it used to be.

    the Heavyweight Division is not...many of the other divisions are as good or better the past 10-15 years with some all-timers and some great rivalries...the three Gatti-Ward fights is one of the great series ever-unbelievably tough

    What does it matter if the person providing a good discussion is a jets fan or not?  This has nothing to do with Patriots, Jets, or football.  You are seriously a disturbed, miserable individual.

    Thanks TFB.  Funny thing is that I've been a Patriot fan for a really long time; despite the highly unsubtantiated rumor.

         Agreed. Smoking Joe was a great fighter. But, Big George was just too big and too powerful for him to handle.

    Smokin' Joe..great fighter...wonderful champ, had heart, great power aqnd stamina, could bob and weave for 15 rounds, washard to hit...he just didn't match up well with "The Mummy" Foreman, as Ali called him...

    Foreman...just an OK champ...a much better sales huckster....

    Ali...greatest of all time...he gave his brains to do it as well...sad!

    Holyfield vs Frazier would have been a good fight.  Heck, Frazier vs Michael Dokes would have been an amazing fight.

    Holyfield vs Frazier would've been a classic...probably the two greatest "small" heavyweights ever

    What are you talking about, Mel?  I never admitted to you anything concerning members names.  The only thing I admitted to concerning names was the Denver fan Papajohn had a few different names that he admitted to me and it was Rusty that I mentioned those names to, not you.  So now I have to wonder about you.  Are you Rusty?  BTW, the reason I mentioned those names to Rusty is because it seems he was confused and was accusing someone else as being Papajohn.  I don't care who posts here or who is who, if I agree with their post then we have a friendly conversation.  If I don't then the conversation is a bit different.  That's it.  I think some people need to focus less time accusing people of what screen names they think they have on here and more time focusing on good forum content.

    If Frazier didnt get inside he was vulnerable. Let him get in close and he could kill you.  His son Marvin's had a short lived career when he impersonated a piñata against Holmes. Holmes whipped up on him so bad he kept waving the ref over to stop the fight so he wouldn't kill him.
