The singlemost instantly recognizable athlete ever.  There will never be another like him in my lifetime.  Maybe ever.  The few good memories of times with my father usually involved one of two things:  his love of RC flying and our love of watching this man - boxing or otherwise.

That's ok - Frazier has nothing to be humiliated about...just some loud mouth talk by Ali. 

Frazier beat him once.  Ali beat Frazier once.  And that one in the middle was just for show - wasn't a real fight....
