Synopsis: A new edition of the autobiography of heavyweight champion Joe Frazier and his incredible career a time when boxing was bold, bright, and glamorous and the fights were the hottest sporting events of the year. Personable, good-natured, and funny, Frazier’s story is a real delight. This updated edition includes tributes to Joe written by the Frazier family, as well as a new afterword.
Joe Frazier was king as the Heavyweight Champion of the World. From 1970 to 1973 he reigned. With a career record of 32-4-1 with twenty-seven knockouts and an Olympic gold medal, Frazier leaves little question that he was one of the greatest fighters of all time. Well-known, loved, and revered as a gentleman and a fierce competitor in the ring, Joe Frazier speaks his mind in Smokin’ Joe about growing up poor and fighting in the first $2.5 million bout; about the early days of his friendship with Muhammad Ali and how their relationship changed; and about the often corrupt world of boxing and what really went on inside and outside the ring.
