Who was Joe Frazier? / Facts

  • He reigned as the undisputed heavyweight champion from 1970 to 1973, and as an amateur won a gold medal at the 1964 Summer Olympics
  • Frazier was known for his sheer strength, durability, formidable punching power, and all-out relentless attack
  • Frazier emerged as the top contender in the late 1960s, defeating opponents that included Jerry Quarry, Oscar Bonavena, Buster Mathis, Eddie Machen, Doug Jones, George Chuvalo and Jimmy Ellis en route to becoming undisputed heavyweight champion in 1970, and followed up by defeating Muhammad Ali by unanimous decision in the highly anticipated "Fight of the Century" in 1971
  • Two years later Frazier lost his title when he was defeated by George Foreman
  • He fought on, beating Joe Bugner, losing a rematch to Ali and beating Quarry and Ellis again
  • Frazier's last world title challenge came in 1975, but he was beaten by Ali in their brutal rubbermatch
  • He retired in 1976 following a second loss to Foreman
  • He made a comeback in 1981, fighting just once, before retiring
  • The International Boxing Research Organization (IBRO) rates Frazier among the ten greatest heavyweights of all time
  • In 1999, The Ring magazine ranked him the 8th greatest heavyweight
  • He is an inductee of both the International Boxing Hall of Fame and the World Boxing Hall of Fame
  • Frazier's style was often compared to that of Henry Armstrong and occasionally Rocky Marciano, dependent on bobbing, weaving and relentless pressure to wear down his opponents
  • His best known punch was a powerful left hook, which accounted for most of his knockouts
  • In his career he lost to only two fighters, both former Olympic and world heavyweight champions: twice to Muhammad Ali, and twice to George Foreman
  • After retiring, Frazier made cameo appearances in several Hollywood movies, and two episodes of The Simpsons
  • His son Marvis became a boxer—trained by Frazier himself—but was unable to match his father's success


  • The way I fight, it's not me beatin' the man. I make the man whip himself.

  • Ali always said I would be nothing without him. But what would he have been without me?
